In my continuous search for a cure to my ongoing illness, I came across this forum. I did not know that clinical depression actually exists until I was prescribed ForfivoXL 450mg. I am taking 1/2 a pill daily. Within two days, my 24/7 suicidal thoughts stopped which was a great thing because my end was very near! In the past, I have been prescribed other antidepressants with a lot of side effects which made me stop them. The first day taking this med, my heart rate was high but after a few days it was not a problem. I was told to take it in the morning because it is known to keep most people awake. After a week, I started taking it at night with no problems sleeping. Forfivo has changed my life. I am not sure if it is a new medicine but I do know that not one Pharmacy I went to had it in stock.
I was so desperate for relief from suicidal thoughts and major depression that I gave this drug a second and third day to work and it did. I hope this information helps.
Clinical depression is real. Now if I can find a cure and cause for the Neuralgia, Migraines, Headaches, Ice pick head spasms, Earaches, and Oozing, burning head wounds that secrete clear serum/lymph from my head would be Fantastic.
Thank you welfare Nurses that use a Doctor title who cannot think outside the box? I had been labeled a hypochondriac for 2 1/2 years until a UCSD Neurologist told me I had Neuralgia; Wikipedia explains it the best. What I haven't found is why I have hard lumps under my scalp until they burst open with this sticky goo? I have a doctors appointment with the UCSD infectious disease group on June 15th...Wish me luck! The last welfare Infectious disease doctor that I saw had long cue tips in his hand and declared that he was only supposed to swab my head, nose, mouth and butt. He said that it would take two weeks for the results. I found out that the tests were never cultured, only cultured for 24 hours? The UCSD pain clinic stated within 30 seconds that they could not inject what ever they were going to inject in my head for the pain because I had lesions and MRSA. It took me 4 months to get an appointment with the Pain Clinic. So much Frustration and Disappointment, of course I am depressed. Depression without being suicidal is the best feeling. Great Luck to All!
