    Hi Vivienne could try valdoxan. No nasty side effects and if it doesn't work u can go straight onto something else without having to taper and wait for weeks. Only thing is you will need to get liver function tested fairly regularly. Best I've tried and that's been a lt! Good luck

    Hi Vivienne, I have been on several ads over the years but at present I'm on a daily dose of Lofepramine a tricyclic ad which keeps me on an even keel. However I was on Sertraline about 2 years ago and put on weight because I was always hungry and so always earing I can't remember if the ad helped as all I did was eat.
