Lorraine, an active member of Derek Scotts SUG group was swapped from Seroxat to Lustral (sertraline) by her Gp so she posted to the group asking for advice; Scott's was a busy "support" group – April 2004 there were 1712 post, an average of 57 posts a day - 3 moderators and himself controlling it, all unemployed and usually on the group all day - yet the only reply she received was from another member Kevin, quoted above information and my initial response - see below
