Thanks, PDU.

Maryjane, I think if you've found a meds regime which improves the quality of your life then that's a huge bonus and many people have been on antidepressants for decades and function so much better than they would without them.

It's all about individual response though. I'm sure one day targeted brain scans will select the appropriate anti depressant to match the presenting grey matter..along with optimum dosage. Until then it's trial and error so if you've found the desired effect stick with it!
