many (most?) antidepressants can cause an increase in energy levels, sometimes aggression, before whatever the "therapeutic effect" really is takes effect. a shrink tried to tell me about it...1-4 weeks of that stuff before the treatment "takes full effect," blah blah blah...

predictably, that's when one sees a jump in self-harm, suicides, etc. thanks, psychiatry. :-(

I dunno. the data on antidepressants in straight up, uncomplicated depression is not all that impressive. reach out to depressive states in other disorders, more moderate cases of depression, recurrent depressive episodes...ugh. why bother, honestly?

5-HTP was ok for me, except for the stomach issues. now, some companies are offering relatively high doses in time release tablet form. I might try it again, maybe.

glad you're doing better. im not dogmatically opposed to psych drugs or anything, but...generally speaking, the fewer drugs of any sort, the better off an individual will be. I think this is -especially- true of psych drugs, because psych doctors seem to just pile those on, no end in sight. don't get it...
