Yes. About eighteen months earlier, I had a brief and unpleasant experience with Effexor XR. Went back to Cymbalta. I recently stopped using Cymbalta because of the dryness it
caused (parasympathetic reaction...overtranquil
lower GI tract led to bleeding.) With Pristiq,
after the side-effects wore off, the capacity for
integrating affect and intellect improves remarkably with each passing day. xenitz14@yahoo
I have been using Concerta and the SNRI together
to combat ADD and depression caused by abuse and
blunt trauma suffered decades earlier during childhood.

I experienced the reality of deliverance and healing.....this is real for all who will grab hold of it. I tried the drug and "therapy" route for 7 yrs of hell. Jesus healed me overnight. I wish I'd known the truth earlier.

Me too, but the world can't handle it unfortunately. It's so much easier for them to resort to pi8lls or booze, just like I used to.

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/TRCx1y only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
