Hi travel lite,
My first post too!
I'm currently on Cipralex 20 mg, and have been for over a year. When I went on, I initially had mild side effects: insomnia, dry mouth, increase heart rate. I find it numbs a little; I don't feel the extreme ends of the emotion spectrum, but that it isn't completely effective in eliminating my depression, and that I am often unmotivated. I also find my normally raging libido (I'm 18) decreased. Two months ago, at the suggestion of my doctor, I added Wellbutrin 150 mg. According to him and the pharmacist, this is a very popular and common combination (of drugs and dosage). My initial side effects were very similar to Cipralex: dry mouth, increased sweating, insomnia. The advantages of the addition of Welbutrin: increased libido, weight loss, lots of motivation and initiative. In layman's terms: hornier than a rhino in heat, hotter than hell, guilt free. The disadvantages: more pills to pop, and more money forked over to "your friendly neighbourhood pharmacy". But, all in all, I'd say the advantages outweigh the disadvantages.
I hope this is helpful
P.S. as a testimonial to the above, it is 2:45 am right now. I feel a bit tired but won't go to bed before I get my work done. I will get up tomorrow morning at approx. 8:30 feeling completely refreshed, and almost peppy. Life is good.
