Though many people are hoping for a quick fix?depression treatment, it simply doesn't exist. All antidepressants, whether homeopathic or pharmaceutical, take time to work. Unfortunately, people suffering depression symptoms don't realize this and instead throw out depression treatments before they have had the opportunity to really make a lasting effect.

And...when you have bp...you have to be very cautious when taking an anti depressant because they can have a rebound effect by making you more depressed. I've had this happen with a couple of them. It's good to know your signs and your body, and to be in close contact with your pdoc. wave

I'm just on the Lillium, so it's hard for me to know what is going on everything is getting different, like today, I am having trouble walking, but it isn't so much from the RA, but I am not sure if it is the Lillium, the fibro, or what, I just feel so weird and I am sick too, so I don't know what to think is what dunno

Maybe you're on too many different meds friend. It happens when you have multiple doctors. I hope they are talking to each other. thumbs up

I'm wondering about you and this Lithium..I'm not sure about the walking issues..but with your other neck issues..that could factor in. You really need to call the doc on this one. Not a good sign to ignore.
