Hi there and Welcome from Lyme!
There are LOADS of horror stories about different AD's. Here in the UK, Prozac / Fluoxetine probably has the worst press; but for the most part, AD's dont deserve it. It is a case of finding a med that suits you. As Karen has said, Effexor works for her. For me, its Zoloft / Sertraline. Other people get on well with Cymbalta, Wellbutrin etc... We have a lot of members who take Cymbalta so I doubt it will be long before someone shares their experience.
Everyone has a guardian angel. They help pick you up when you fall, comfort you through your times of need and help you appreciate the times when things are going well.
