Jun 1, 2002 (Started Jul 01, 2000)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Depression with anxiety: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Never
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 20 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This medication is on my black list (as are other ssri's). Side effect was severe in my case (heat intolerance resulted while on medication, and has continued to be a problem to lesser degree, since discontinuation of the medication in 2002). Sadly, medical professionals I sought (and there were many), only had familiarity with ssri's, and did not have education, confidence, or familiarity with less toxic medications that were available. I did my own research on naturopathic options, and I sought the advise of a naturopath and have found greater success in treatment for my ocd, anxiety, and depression - with less side effects, through non-pharmacuetical approach; I now take 5-htp - have taken it 5yrs without side effects (although I know it can have some). I'm left frustrated that our health care system is geared to prescribe only pharmacueticals when there may often be less toxic medications out there that deliver the same success and with less dependence on the health care system.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
