Memory loss
Been to hell and back this year with the divorce, plus I've got two little kids, so I haven't had a decent night's uninterrupted sleep in 4 years. Not complaining but my memory is non existant sometimes. I feel stupid and sluggish. The most basics tasks, I can't remember. On Cilift for a year now, but want to know will this ever come right? And how?

I really suspect that these rumours of Cilift not being such a good antidepressant have been spread by some people from the Cipramil sellers, trying to discourage people from using a much cheaper and totally equal generic version, wich is denting the profits of the earlier version of the drug. And especially now that they're trying to persuade all of us to switch to their own new product Cipralex, which they will have exclusive rights to ( no generic competitor ) for a number of years. I have not been convinced that we should trust drug companies without caution !
Sounds like you wuld do well to go back to see a psychiatrist for a fresh re-assessment of the situation, and a full discussion of treatment alternatives. This CAN come right, so it's worth persisting.
