    SAM-e can wind you up so go at it slow - 200mg at a time, give it a day for each dose to catch up with you. I took Cymbalta and it gave me panic attacks, so your mileage may vary :-(

    •  Thanks my friend. (0+ / 0-)

      Cymbalta has been working pretty well, although I have had to raise the dose. My medprac gives me free samples so that's no problem; but it remains to be seen as to how long I will be able to be on it. All of the anti-depressants I have ever been on have failed eventually. It's just a big ol' crap shoot.

      Like the Kynes quote, BTW.

      Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
