Thanks for the clarification...It seems to be an issue of p-doc (or whoever's prescribing the meds) awareness and sensitivity, no? Ideally, p-docs would listen empathetically, take our reports of side effects seriously (even if there isn't research supporting our anecdotal evidence yet, as with weight gain on SSRIs), and talk through other options with us if we want to. My current p-doc does, but I think it's because I come in every six months for a med check and pepper him with questions. (I must be a real joy to see in his doorway!)
And maybe some people *don't* need to be on SSRIs their whole lives...
