Sleepy Lizard,

Thanks for taking the time to respond. Why should it take six weeks to know if an AD is going to work when in the past I knew after a day that the prothiaden would work, I knew after 4 days that the Seroxat was working, I switched from Seroxat to Sertraline and they carried on working. I would be prepared to give a drug a six weeks chance if I could tolerate the horrible mental side effects (which, I hasten to add are not due to just the real depressed me).

I think that if a drug is going to work then you don't get horrible mental side effects with it, perhaps physical side effects but not mental. For instance, when I took Seroxat for the first time years ago, I felt sick, I had terrible diarrhoea, my legs felt weak and I felt in a trance, but at the same time I felt my mood lifting. Funnily enough, this time round I have none of those physical side effects and my mood has sometimes felt worse.
