The vortioxetine is different, but it seems to work similarly to an SSRI and give sexual dyfunction. The flood of Serotonin to my brain when i was on SSRI's was too much to bear, i felt nothing. I don't think this will work for me...

I just googled when latuda will be generic and a result said in 2018 so that's good news. That's one med i woul actually try. Abilify im afraid will give me side effects i couldn't live with. I already have a lot of trouble falling asleep...

I wish i could find out what exactly is causing my anhedonia... Why i reacted to SSRI's the way i did.
The dysfunction is supposed to be lower than most ADs....and it directly activates some of the serotonin receptors which is supposed to kind of desensitize them and yet people come out happy anyway.


Iím thinking about asking for it for the cognitive and negative symptoms just not sure it will work with Abilify the way it works with latuda, itís also a new more expensive drug but Iíve got gold level insurance right now.....why not.
