My latest drug trial is showing some positive results. I switched to nefazodone about a month ago, and just reached 300mg/daily. The negative thought patterns and 'mental pain' are easing up slowly but surely. I actually have been tempted to socialize more, go out more, maybe even get back into shape. Just thought I would put my results thus far up here to remind you all that finding the right drug can pick you back up. I was in my pit pretty deep, and thought about suicide for a great portion of my days.
Side effect for me is a disrupted sleep/wake pattern. A bit of insomnia and I sleep in late. No sexual side effects, thank God. Mix that with feeling better, and the sleep issue is not a big deal for me at this point whatsoever, especially since I work nights, and have my days free. As long as my liver doesn't implode, all in all I would say I am having a positive response to nefazodone. And my prescription is dirt cheap to boot, and I even get a AAA discount! Helps when you have no insurance.
Best of luck to you all struggling in your quest for mental contentment.
