    Many antidepressents may have s/e of low libido. Zoloft and Paxil may have that s/e. In terms of drug screens, anti-depressents don't show up on drug screens. Tranquilizers like Xanax and Ativan would show up. When u take a drug screen, u need to say that they are prescribed for you. A lot of Nurses take anti-depressents. There is nothing wrong with that. Unfortunately, there is still a stigma about depression, anxiety, etc. As there is with alcoholics, but a few brave souls who are in the spot light have come "out of the closet", and thus have helped people go get help. You can do the same.
    I've been really happy with Effexor but i'm starting to notice more and more headaches. Has anyone had this prob? There hasn't been low libido probs, but sometimes extreme headaches during :imbar . if anyone has info please let me know.
