    i was on it for 2 years before, i didnt experience any side effects, you dont feel any better until like a month after consistenly taking it, dont expect immediate results.

    Most people get revved up for the first month or less that they are on it. It really isn't sedative. If you have sexual side effects (not being able to come is one of the most common) then talk to your doctor and she can put you on something else, like Paxil or Welbutrin, which have less side effects.

    For a lot of people, this is a good drug for depression, as long as you are not Bi Polar.

    Prozac´s not bad, but be careful, when ending the medication, you have to go out of it VERY, VERY slow, in case you don´t want headaches that last for weeks (I´ve already had them, and I´ve had lots of patients with the same problem).
    B.t.w.: Ever tried "Reboxetine"? I don´t know under which name they sell it in the US, here in Europe the common name is "Edronax"(R). It´s mainly used to treat depressive old people, but I´ve found out, that it also works very good for younger people with depressions, that have been so far not treatable with classic antidepressants or serotonine-inhibitors (like "Prozac"(R)). And it has the great advantage, that you can also use it for bi-polar-patients. 4mg in the morning and 2mg at noon should be an appropriate dosage, maybe ask your doctor about it?
