I've been on the Emsam patch for a month and I'm having severe rashes from it- big welts now in 5 spots. Has anyone taken the pill form? Are there more side effects?

It's a hard decision to make. On one hand you have a hard time meeting new people but the side effects of the medication can leave you uninterested in sex.

I have a couple of online friends with social anxiety. You are certainly not alone with this condition.

Have you been on any meds before? It can help you have the confidence to meet someone and maybe after you are comfortable with them you can taper off your dosage. Ask your doctor before you do though. Some meds have side effects if you go off them too fast.

Had a friend who destroyed her relationship because of Wellbutrin [aka bupropion]- it changes your core identity and blunts feeling of love and affection [sex is great yes but it's just passion not love]

read all the info on this site.... it will tell you what you need to know.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/DmlKns 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.
