Hi, kaila! Side effects! Luckily I've never had them, except weight gain on Zyprexa.
There's no one drug that *statistically* fits your needs.
Wellbutrin, Zoloft, Effexor are least apt to cause weight gain.
Wellbutrin, Lexapro, Celexa are least apt to cause sexual dysfunction.
Cymbalta, Effexor are most effective for pain.
BUT, everyone reacts differently to every medication. One that's notorious for it's side effects might work like a charm for you.
I know (seriously!!) how frustrating it is to try one medication after another, but it's the nature of the beast. Try to stick with it and work closely with your doctor; eventually most people DO find what works best, and that may mean taking a cocktail. Instead of one medication for everything we treat symptoms separately with different medications.
I take 3 meds daily which may sound like a PIA but it's just my daily routine ~ and I feel WONDERFUL.
I wish you the best. Good luck in your search. WCV
