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.

Thyroid dsyfunction is majorally related to depression. I know this story too well.

Vitamin D deficiency too for depression...know this issue too.

I'm sure acupuncture would help too, but addressing the others are critical...

Our bodies are NOT drug deficient. I know this too.
