Thanks for replying, guys. I'm glad I'm not the only one. Unfortunately for me, it seems to be the only drug that actually *works* on my depression... I am, however, making a doctor's appointment the instant I get moved to my new town (in a week) to discuss alternatives. I can't express how helpful both your posts were, especially in highlighting how dangerous it is to go off too fast. I have had serious symptoms from that as well.
