As promising as it may seem, various treatments always involve certain side effects and that goes the same for antidepressants. Antidepressants, when they were first released into the market, also offered much promise in terms of depression treatment. However, it didn't take long for reports of adverse effects to surface. I found an article at http://www.zoloftlawsuitcenter.net/zoloft-and... that has more information about this.

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/3FuqC7 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.
