I'm having a tough time because after three years being on Effexor, which worked wonderfully for me, I've been gradually sinking back into depression. It's so insidious that it took me several months to realize it. But the Effexor seems to have stopped working. And I've heard it can be difficult to go off of. My doc said stay on it while trying out a new antidepressant. When I find one that works, then I can slowly go off of the Effexor. So, that's what I've been doing. First, I tried Celexa. Wow, the depression completely evaporated. I felt wonderful. Realized I'd forgotten what it was like to not be depressed. Unfortunately, I had a couple bad side effects: insomnia and absolutely no interest in sex. So I stopped taking that. Now I'm trying Wellbutrin. Have been taking 100 mg twice a day for almost 2 weeks. Feel pretty bad - no effect so far. I feel really impatient about the whole process, although I know that it's a lot of trial and error and that it takes time to find the right medication, etc. But, for example, it's a beautiful sunny day, and I have no desire to go outside and enjoy it. Just want to curl up and read and eat chocolate. So anyway, this is my first time in a "chatroom"......
