Hi, Candy! What questions do you have... about antidepressants in general or particular ones? Efficacy? Side effects? If you could be a little more specific we'll be happy to try and help.
Best regards, Wildcat

Hi Candywoo,
From my experience a lot of SSRI's are very similar. They can take up to one month to work although they usually work quicker. Many of them will cause slight weight gain. Effexor is one drug that works a little different. Most SSRI's (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) affect your Serotonin levels. Effexor also affects your energy levels if fatigued because it also affects your norepinephrine levels. When you talk to your doctor let him/her know your symptoms. Also, St. John's Wort is a natural cure for depression and you might try that!
Best of luck!
