My advice to any one who does well on a medication for at least a year and thendespite doseage changes, notices a return of symptomstalk to your doctor.
All of the SSRI's have this effect on me, even though this particular side effect is mostly seen in adolescents which I am not! The other thing is, Anti depres. Not a doctor, etc.
