Interesting to note that medications are effective 30% to 45% of cases when used. I consider myself lucky then! The first ssri I tried worked and continues to work very well. Alot has to do with my attitude toward the medication though, if I was taking it as an order, I don't know if it would be as effective. I actually sought a candidate med, then consulted my doctor.
