It is important to remember that different people have different body chemistries and that medications work differently on different people. This is just how these medications have worked for me.
|Medication||Dosage||Effects on Mood||Side Effects|
|Prozac||20mg - 80 mg||Hypomania at first, then mildly positive effects on mood||Loss of appetite (major), sleep disturbances (minor), nausea (at first)|
|Zoloft||50mg - 175mg||
None (or mild and then constantly declining:
I ended up in the hospital on this medication)
|Effexor||75mg - 300mg||
Most promising thus far. Positive mood.
Minor 'dips' from time to time.
Currently seems to be declining. (1/28)
Headache (including migraine). (seems to have disappeared)
Sleep disturbances (major). Vivid dreams(major, but entertaining).
