Well, I "remembered" another one, thanks to the SF Chron's Day in Pictures:

"There is no Dana; There is only Zuul."

It's starting to get harder to remember what I've taken since my doctors have switched me around quite a bit in the last 3 years. I first took any kind of anti-depressant in 1993, I think. After much resistance to the idea.

Zoloft - I was tried on it but it whacked me out so badly with speedy side-effects I had to stop.

Effexor - The main one I used before I gave up anti-depressants in 1996 or so.

Trazodone - Taken mainly to counteract the tendency Effexor had to keep me up at night.

Effexor XR - I took this when I had to crawl back to the anti-depressant pushers. I thought it would be the same as what I took before. It wasn't. Strong speedy side-effects I found unacceptable. I gave it up after a fortnight or so.

Celexa - What I ended up on for a while after the Effexor. And returned to after Cymbalta.

Cymbalta - Worked reasonably well for me but I had to give it up when I got the layoff news. It's still under patent and thus prohibitively expensive.

Right now I'm on nothing and have been on nothing for almost 3 weeks. Yet I'm still having withdrawal symptoms.
