I really do know how those anti-depressant withdrawals can, and they are 
not pleasant, especially in in the higher dose range.  Back in November 
of 2008 of tried to ween myself off of 450mg of Wellburtrin(Bupropine) 
and 150mg of Effexor(Venlafaxine) all to know avail in avoiding the the 
withdrawals.  I would rather not go through that again. I was very sick 
and uncomfortable feeling for about 2 weeks. I do see a benefit in 
antidepressants for some.  I  noticed that I was much less irritable and 
less likely to get angry and annoyed at situations and people...more of 
a mellowed out state.  Other than that it did not help in a number of 
other issues that I was dealing with, mainly: alcohol cravings, 
compulsive behavior and thinking.  I don't think I'll ever say yes to a 
Serotonin/Dopamine inhibitor again after this last experience.  Just not 
sure if the cost and side effects of stopping are worth the small 
benefit I got from them.
