Hello & welcome to the forum. Sorry to read about what you are dealing with. To be honest, any kind of chronic illness just sucks & it is common for a person to become depressed. I have been on Effexxor & Zoloft several times over the years & have done well with both. But, you must understand we all react differently to the meds so it is a matter of finding what works with you the best. And there are many different ones to try. It is trial & error at first. It usually takes a few weeks for the medication to kick in to see if its going to help. If you by chance have any side effects, just remember they are temporary.
Hopefully what ever your dr decides on with be the one you need.
