In what follows I’m relying heavily on two websites that try to keep up to date, John Grohol’s Psych Central and John Mc Manamy’s Mc Man’s Depression and Bipolar Web.Mc Manamy, a bipolar survivor, deserves special credit for keeping his site running on donations and subscriptions, and avoiding Big Pharma advertising.

In Europe, these were (pre-SSRI) usually considered the first line of treatment, preferred over tricyclics, while in the U. they are often resorted to only when everything else has failed.Antidepressants increased the risk of suicidal thoughts and behavior in children, adolescents, and young adults in short-term studies.These studies did not show an increase in the risk of suicidal thoughts and behavior with antidepressant use in patients over age 24; there was a reduction in risk with antidepressant use in patients aged 65 and older In patients of all ages who are started on antidepressant therapy, monitor closely for worsening, and for emergence of suicidal thoughts and behaviors.

I have an appointment to see my doctor Thursday and we both talked about going back to the beginning and really evaluating what medications were the best.I seem to be having a hard time concentrating and may need to talk to my doctor about trying some kind of ADD medication. M4 Then you should look into Cymbalta but I must warn you that it's pretty much as hard as Effexor to come off.
