Yes!!: There's actually a class of medications called Atypical Antidepressants-Pristiq, Welbutrin, Cymbalta, Effexor, (venlafaxine) and Remeron. They all work a little differently from each other and from the most common class of antidepressants and thus each have their own potential list of side effects. However, it may be worth talking to your doctor/psychiatrist about these particular drugs.There IS help!!!
