Our expert says:
I don't think Cipralex, a particularly expensive drug, has major advantages over other much more affordable antidepressants, and its irresponsible of doctors to prescribe such expensive meds without being sure you will be able to afford them for a year. There aere many alternatives, such as Cilift, a very similar drug, and at a much better price, which your GP could prescribe for you. If your boyfriend also needs help, he needs to be persuaded to see someone, and not to take your meds !
