Thanks for the support, i appreciate it. That 7 hours I had that clarity felt so good though that I'm craving it all the time now. I was on wellbutrin before this and it held me for 3 years well, that was my first antidepressant and was a simple drug. I hope it didn't spoil the other drugs for me being on it.

It really isn't surprising that something like that happens early in treatment, and it's certainly not time yet to give up on it. Had there been one day out of six months -- or even three months -- I'd suggest making a change myself. But at this point, it's worth holding on to see how the medication works once it's had enough time to kick in all the way.

When a change in brain function occurs that allows one to emerge out of a biogenic depression, even if only for a moment, there is no mistaking it. It is like watching a sunrise.
