i am wanting to hear from people who have had the bad side effects that are described in this book. there haven't been many posts about it recently. i did not tolerate the ad's very well so did not stay on them very long. i have a friend who saw a doctor on tv that said the first thing he does it put his fm patients on ad's. this friend is now an expert and insists that we are all sick with depression and don't know it or we are in denial and that if we won't go on ad's permanetly we will never get well. just another example of ignorance at work.i have read about people who have gone off these drugs and said their symptoms have come back. maybe it was the withdrawl they were experiencing. some people have gone as far as to say the drug companies know all about this and want the drugs this way so people will stay on them for life. please share if you have a story. thanks.
