I was on a drug study for three months taking Agomelatine and it litarly saved my life. I have been off the medication now for 2 months and i am right back to where i started. I am very angry right now because this medication is so tightly gaurded that i can hardly find out any information about it. I know that it has been said that this medication is in phase III and if everything goes well i am probably looking at the end of 2009/2010 I CAN NOT WAIT THAT LONG!!!!!!!!!!!! My docter has tried calling Novartis to find out if there is any way that i could get back Agomelatine and was denied due to the fact is is not available in any country. Don't get me wrong i am thankful that i have had the opportunity to experience this new wonderdrug but at the same time comming off of the medication almost drove me to full out crisis. There must be something that i can due to get back on the medication seeing as i was monitored very closly for three months and the drug company knows excatly how it reacts with my body. I would like to note that before i was on this mediaction i was collecting disability from the government due to my depression and anxiety and 2 months into the study i withdrawld mysely off of disability because i was no longer dependent and started up a business with my best friend and now that i am off Agomelatine i am slipping back into severe depression, stress, and sleep related issues. I am no longer able to function properly and fear i may loose my company. I dont feel that the drug company knows just how serious this is for me. I have tried over 20 diffent kinds of medications for depression and have had no sucsess. I would seriously give up everything i have to be back on this medication. Is there anyone out there that know of any way that i might get back on this medication or any new information that may be usefull to me??? I am reaching out now because i do not know what else there is for me to do. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP!
