This is very interesting to me! Can you explain a little more? Why did you go off of SSRIs? If you take it now, how does it make you feel and how is that different from before?

I was on zoloft for 8 years, and it worked great. Then, after 8 years, I started to experience new SE including confusion, mental and physical lethargy, muscle ache, and non-restful sleep. In other words, the SE's completely changed to the point I had to go off of it. So I tried Lexapro and experienced similar SE's. I tried Cymbalta but it made me more anxious. I tried Wellbutrin and the TCA's and became hyper. I tried prozac and after a month it made me SEVERELY DEPRESSED. Even the benzodiazepine's make me depressed in a weird numbing way. I tried to go back on zoloft and it made me more anxious!

My doctor says I have become hypersensitive to the drugs and that I am atypical. He says most people who experience problems after years on one drug can find another one. I have no idea what happened!
