  • Depression dysthemia off & on for 15+ years often severe with suicidal. Started effexor and in 1-3 months went from "severely depressed" on Beck depression questionare to "no signs of depression". A life saver. Thought I'd never be cured again......This after no success with several months to years trials of Cipralex, Welbutrin, Divalproex
