You sound just like me. I worry myself incessantly when I start new meds. I
also worry about long term side effects, etc. I was so afraid in the
beginning, I actually had to break my pill in half because I wanted to see
if it would make me sick.
I have been on several AD’s over the past 13 years. I took Zoloft for a year
or two. It helped a *tiny* bit but then it just stopped working. It also
made me anxious- especially in the beginning and it gave me daily diarrhea
( I prefer this to being constipated which is what many of them seem to do
I only took Celexa for a few months. I think Celexa & Prozac worked pretty
much in the same way on me. Made me a little hyper and gave me vivid dreams.
The good news is that neither one of them made me gain any weight.
The tricylics have a tendency for the most weight gain but the SSRIs dont
have to do this if you’re careful. I say it’s worth a two month trial. If
you don’t like it, shop around for something else.
