Oh geez, the list is getting long. First ever was Cymbalta, then zoloft and prozac. Never been very succesful on any SSRI. Most effective drug I have used has been Effexor, until it pooped out after a couple years. Then switched briefly to cymbalta. Been on wellbutrin before, which I can't feel any difference with. Have tried stablon, and Ixel, both with interesting but ineffective results. Um, lamictal helped, it worked to keep me level with the effexor. The sexual side effects became too much for me.
Had a string of bad events occur in 08 that put my stress and anxiety through the roof. Nefazadone did a good job at bringing me back to feeling 'normal'. Some of my stress and depression have been situational, but most of my symptoms began and came out of nowhere. I have read that nefazodone is great with anxiety and is okay with depressive symptoms. I am getting my life back on track with certain respects and am level headed for now. But I can feel my depressive symptoms in the back of my brain and feel they may be a problem in the future. For this reason I am probably gonna obtain some agomelatine and give that a try, before accepting where I am at with the nefazadone.
