From this study (1 year ago):
I was often in trouble at school but only to the point of being described as mischievous. Towards the end of my teens and early to mid 20s this mischief making became an irritant to others although I was unaware of it. During my working life, it became unacceptable and I found myself in many disciplinary situations without understanding why. Throughout all of this, I was stressed and anxious and fed many hypertension and anti-depressant / anti-anxiety meds. At the age of 35, I was diagnosed with Asperger's disorder and started CBT. I became more mentally aware of mannerisms and behaviour and the actions that caused me to get into trouble. The mental energy in analysing my every move led to exhaustion and a deep depression. Quite by chance, I had some surgery which involved using tramadol as a post-op painkiller. It did nothing for the pain but I started to receive compliments about my improved behaviour. I increased my tramadol intake and the compliments became positive feedback. I started using tramadol to excess and, to make this tale a short one, I still see the world through the eyes of an autistic but I better understand what is and what is not acceptable. Honesty, it seems, is not. I am now addicted to tramadol, have depression, anxiety and nausea to the extent that I do not enjoy life but I fear death enough not to act on it.

Look up sociopathy it is a common misdiagnosis to Aspergers. Those with Aspergers often don't get into trouble due to their quiet nature. Your taking of said pills to please others coincides with you not being on the autistic spectrum. Further more depression and anxiety are two different things. Those with Aspergers do not get depressed unless medicated. High levels of the hormone vasopressin often induces the anxiety. You have no impulsive empathy that signifies emotions working in the frontal region of the brain rather than the amygdala hence sociopathy not aspergers.

Seems like you're making an extremely bold assessment on very little information here. Hope you keep in mind that there is an actual human being on the other end.
From this study (3 years ago):
Was on Cymbalta for 1 yr, it worked for depression & then the effectiveness was reduced, the depression increased & anxiety increased so I went off of it and had horrible side effects. I have been unable to funciton. This was 2 months ago, I had to be put on Pristiq, but now I am experiencing rapid thoughts, headaches & I think it is the combination of adderall xr & Pristiq. Also beware of using seroquel for sleep. I got myself off of that in Jan & it took me months of no sleep & I am still struggling to get to sleep each night. None of these drugs will continue to work, you must have talk therapy to eventually get rid of your depression & anxiety.

i've been on pristiq for almost a month and had hypomania for 2 weeks exactly. it tapered off to where i function alright. with hypomania i had racing thoughts and felt that i could grasp quantum physics or learn a foreign language in a week.i call it the superman syndrome. you become fearless and bulletproof. i slept about 4 hours a day heavily medicating myself with xanax and ambien. i still sleep about 4 or 5 hours a day. i still wonder where the hypomania fits into this picture. i am by no means bi-polar but now am anxiety and depression free. this is a wonder drug for me.
