Still no reason to be on drugs that change who you are and how you act. Notice they say "some had"...."may have"...not definitive.

Please be more responsible in what you say to people. You would not tell a person with diabetes not to take insulin.

In a disorder with suicidal potential, its victims don't need another thing to feel bad about (I shouldn't need medication.)

In response to the comment posted by "Been there": I am Gwynne Curry and I wrote the book mentioned. In my book I make it very clear that if you're currently on medication that you should not discontinue it without the advice and help of the medical professional who prescribed it. There are serious side effects to stopping some anti-depressants cold turkey, so I would never recommend doing that. However, if you're depressed but haven't started on medication, my book may give you the tools and techniques to overcome your depression so that you won't have to take them.

I have ordered 2 times from this website PILLSMEDSHOP. COM . I called yesterday the customer care and asked for a discount as i was about to order twice the regular amount.

I've been on Effexor from 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.
