    Some people just can't take certain antidepressants. It's toxic in their body. Just an idea but have your liver enzymes an pancreatic enzymes check to see if elevated. I had Hepatitis from 2 med's. Not the blood hepatitis but inflammation of the liver. Alot of these meds are metabolised thrue the liver or broke down in the liver. Zoloft an Prozac were horrible on me. Severe anorexia, severe diarrhea, BAD joint pain, all over bad body pain. I couldn't hardly function. Had tests done an showed elevated enzymes. Tapered down a little then stopped both when I was taking them. 2-wks later...no body pain, no joint pain etc.. had bloodwork done again a month off these an enzymes went back down. Thats proof that some of these just can't ve taken by certain people. If it continues (body pain, joint pain) i would get bloodwork. Why suffer?
