have been withdrawing from AD for 5 weeks now and god i feel like ive gone cold turkey at times but only 3 weeks to go till start duluxetine. would really appreciate if any one can share how they have found duluxetine? be much more useful than some medics view.. thanks. changing as my symptoms include, extreme fatigue, insomnia, very low motivation, like my brain goes into limited stanby mode, have to repeat tasks ova in order in my head otherwise i could stand there staring at the cooker for hours not havin a clue where to start! feel sorry for my little ones putting up with anything less than they deserve mostly. am awaiting CBT at mo, yep on that oh so well known waiting list lol!!done enough counnselling/talking ova the years, now i just wanna pro-actively change whether i have to be taken to bits first.. thanks for reading. think we all do amazing insuch adversity and little concrete knowledge known by "proffessionals" ..

Hello, and welcome to crazyboards! Check out the medication boards for people's experiences/advice on different meds. There isn't any difference between being clinically depressed and 'just depressed' - the clinical bit just stipulates that you meet the technical criteria. I guess it's a way of saying "you are actually depressed in the true sense of the word, rather than just having an off day/feeling a bit down".

Hope you find the boards useful

xx

I took it for FM. It made me a zombie. Sleepy-groggy. Couldn't even function. Took it at night so I could sleep. The drowsiness did not wear off at all the next day. Didn't help with the pain.
