Well back on the antidepressants. This time I’m (we’re) giving Wellbutrin XL a try to see if it works out better than Zoloft. Zoloft side effects were unpleasant, and I’m certainly glad that there is something another drug to try, but still not too excited. I always thought that antidepressants were like a magic bullet and returned people back to their former selves, or maybe even happier selves. Sadly this has not been my experience. While it does make me a ton better than what I was (and is preferable in that sense), it does introduce a skew in my personality – a 3rd Erik (as opposed to normal and depressed). Many days I wonder if the “normal Erik” days are gone and just a distant memory – and maybe have become my “good ‘ol days”!
