User Comments about Cipralex
05 Dec 2016 I smoked for thirty years, then over a dozen years ago, I thought I had come down with a very bad case of pneumonia. After my wife nagged me for a week, I finally saw the doctor. I was diagnosed with severe COPD. They were amazed that I had waited so long, years in fact, before going to a doctor over it. They gave me three years tops before it killed me. That was thirteen years ago and I am still living. I don't do much, because I no longer have the ability. I can no longer walk, am always hooked up to an oxygen air line, and my body is starting to shut down. There are times that I can't remember my wife's name, even though we have been married for nearly forty years. Truth be told, there are times that I truly wish I had died years ago when I could still walk, talk, play with my grandkids, but GOD decided that it might be better for me to live a bit longer. My wife asks me, when I am having a bad day, if I want to go to the hospital. I always decline, reminding her that I do not want to die in the hospital, but to die at home with the people that I love most. Hospitals can no longer do anything good for me. Even Duke Hospital admits that they do not know why I am still living. GOD purpose will eventually be known until i found testimonies of Great Dr. Lusanda in an online research and on Facebook, Like anybody would be, I was very skeptical about contacting him, but i later did email him and he started the remedies for my health. Thank God, i am cured from COPD by the herbal medication I received from him. I never thought that COPD can be cured, from the bottom of my heart I’m truly grateful,i pray you have long life so you can help many more people on earth with your herbal medical support. Contact Lusanda today, Email: drlusandaherbal(AT)gmail(dot)com or website on www(DOT)drlusandaherbal(DOT)com

01 Dec 2016 Hi ! The last comments, this is an update and I wanted to ad... Do you remember ? I were pregnant ? just to let you know,we didn't plan for this pregnancy to happen. Well...we passed extremely hard,last year and we had to make a very tough decision...just to let you know,it's not a good idea, to have a baby on Cipralex. We learn,the baby had 100 % down syndrome and I was pregnant for almost 7 months. I had to go through,the test is called NIPT (panorama test ) and this is the test Genetic...it's a long needle going through your stomach,through the baby fetus,to take blood etc (It's a risk for miscarriage). It came back,100% down syndrome and we had to make the hardest decision,into our life. I was going through a big fever and almost lost my life...I was told by my doctor, I was high risk pregnancy,with thyroid gland problems. By quitting Cipralex...I had deep anxieties attack and couldn't sleep,couldn't function anymore,I was losing control of myself.,going through little body seizures myself,not normal dreams etc. Another needle into my stomach,that was painful and to provoke contractions,because,the baby's heart stopped,of too much seizure. (demolitions of the placenta). We had to go through,labor and put to rest, this beautiful loving sweet angel,baby boy...Jan 15, 2016. R.I.P sweet angel Sédrick Roger Côté xoxox Always missed and love,cherish into our heart, forever.

03 Apr 2016 After trying numerous antidepressants years back and having bizarre reactions and becoming a walking zombie I was prescribed "Cipralex" 3 weeks ago tomorrow. I started with only 1/4 of a tablet as I was apprehensive but beside a bit of an odd smell when going to the bathroom they are amazing. After only 1/4 pill the first day about 4 hours after I took it I found myself laughing for the first time in years and now feel calmer, and much more focused with more drive. A month ago I could barely read a paragraph without losing my concentration or re-reading it over and over,now I WANT to read and read. I feel so much more in control,then again I have been experiencing depression for about 20 years and yes you can talk yourself out of it BUT it will NOT go away and often gets worse.It will ruin your life be aware it is very serious depression,it creeps up slowly until people pull away from you. It DESTROYED my last relationship with my girlfriend who I thought I would marry. I became indifferent, took her for granted, didn't shower much,looked scruffy,became a recluse,took no interest in her or her friends, went to bed at 6am in the morning ,became distant and bad tempered. I cannot endorse these things more 'Cipralex' are state of the art and you do NOT feel weird or spaced out. I feel SO much like my old self,in fact trying hard to improve myself in many areas now and hoping to meet her in a few months to apologize,my dream obviously being that perhaps we could form a bond and eventually try one more time....... People honestly you have nothing to lose except wasting time procrastinating like I did ,try these pills they are making a huge difference for me so far. Good Luck to all thanks much for reading P
