Cipralex
Cipralex is an Allosteric Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (ASRI) with a unique Serotonin Dual-Action. This is a technical way of describing that this medication has a mode of action in two separate ways on serotonin receptors.

The manufacturer provides a wonderful description of this medication as well as a visual representation of its mode of action for those who are interested in a clearer understanding of the brain chemistry of Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors {SSRI} anti depressants.

I haven't had any huge, life-altering experiences because of...

Kristi I take Cipralex and have found taking it at night just before bed works better for me because it makes me a bit drowsy and therefore helps with my insomnia too. Not sure when you take it but that might be an option as well.

Man, I'm getting discouraged waiting for the Zoloft to start helping. After the cipralex I thought I'd be basically picking up where the cipralex left me which was no to mild depression with some anxiety and difficulty sleeping. It's like I'm starting all over. I've been at 150 mg for 2 weeks after building up from 50 and 100 and tapering off the cipralex. My pdoc (filling in for my regular) felt it would be another 2 weeks before I get relief. I've had ssome good days and actually made...
