So many meds, so many side effects and no lite at the end of the tunnel. All of us with depression will never get better.

i HAVE BEEN ON MANY MEDICATIONS OVER THE YEARS AND I WAS RECENTLY SWITCHED BY MY DOC FROM ZOLOFT WHICH HAD LOST SOME OF IT'S EFFECTIVENESS TO CYMBALTA 30MG. ONE AN DAY. SO FAR SO GOOD. THE SIDE EFFECTS HAVE BEEN MINIMAL SO FAR.
