My job is pure hell and my family has pulled some absolutely wild stunts. I've always been really resilient but I finally broke and my doctor put me on Ciprilex.

Comment:
I had tried two other drugs in the past 10 years (SSRI). I was almost ready to give up but then gave Wellbutrin a try. The adjustment period was hardly noticeable.
