Indiv differences: Each man reacts to the various SSRIs (etc) differently and even may vary themselves over time. So, your friend may do better w/ one and you w/ the other. If you don't like the way one works - work w/ your Dr to taper and switch and consider CBT Tx as an alternative or supportive addition to reduce need for drugs. Best!
