    My GP has decided that Citalopram is doing nothing for me, so she is weaning me off them for the next 7 days and is then going to start me on something else. She hasn't said what yet. I will take a guess at Fluoxetine.

    I just wanted to know which anti-depressants have been effective for any of you, so I can perhaps suggest these to my GP. :)

    hey lexxiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii ok so these are the ones i have tried so far
    dotheipin - anti depressant and sedative ...not really that great

    cipralex-gave me heart flutters
    fluoxetine - great but prozac burnout
    lofepramine-great for severe depression

    It varies so much from person to person. I can just urge you to keep trying until you find one that works for you. I switched about every 3 to 6 months for 3 years before finding one that works for me. (seroquel and paxil)
    Three years felt like an eternity when I wanted to die, but better late than never.

    Take care.
