Can you suggest alternatives for depression sufferers who have experienced serotonin syndrome? I've suffered from dysthymia and major depressive episodes for my entire life. Until recently, I controlled my depression through strenuous exercise, but returning to graduate school forced me to try antidepressants for the first time. After having adverse reactions to five different SSRIs, I was recently diagnosed with serotonin syndrome. Most of the information I've found talks about treating the syndrome itself but says nothing about what to do next.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- All the stars have aligned for this, the last stop on the hockey tour de force that will likely reach legendary proportions Sunday afternoon, when the U.S. and Canada face off with Olympic gold on the line.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The home crowd was content, and looking ahead. This one was in the bag. Canada was up 3-nil on a game-but-overmatched Slovakia club with another 14 minutes to play, but really, this one was over, right? If you were one of the many face-painted fans, it was time to get obnoxious, and maybe get some face-time on CTV. It was time to hope that Jarome Iginla would line up Slovakia's Zigmund Palffy and deliver some Iggy-on-Ziggy violence.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- When asked if could pinpoint Slovakia on a map, Team Canada defenseman Dan Boyle immediately blurted, "Umm, right next to the Czech Republic. I know it used to be part of Czechoslovakia, right? So I'll say close to the Czech Republic."
VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The clock hadn't even ticked to :00 by the time the first pair of Canadian gloves hurtled into the air. The 15 players on the bench monitored the scoreboard clock to see when time officially ran out, because you couldn't hear the horn at Canada Hockey Place. You couldn't hear anything but a nation exult, rejoice at realizing a dream: a hockey gold medal right before their eyes.
WHISTLER, British Columbia -- If there were to be a bobsled episode of The Twilight Zone, the final two runs of the women's bobsled at the Whistler Sliding Centre Wednesday night would do well as inspiration: Canada, which had zero prior medals in women's bobsled, took gold and silver; the Germans, who had nabbed three of the six medals awarded at the two prior Games that had women's bobsled, went missing from the podium; the USA 2 sled ended up not only as the top American sled, but the third best in the world; and one of the world's best technical drivers crashed herself out of contention.
VANCOUVER, B.C. -- Gold to Kim Yu-na of South Korea, silver to Mao Asada of Japan, and a bronze for the ages to Canada's Joannie Rochette. That is E.M. Swift's prediction for the Ladies' figure skating title, the showcase event on a day which also features medals handed out in men's aerials, women's cross-country, Nordic combined, women's hockey and women's giant slalom.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- There was no stopping it. This big red wave came crashing down on the Russians Wednesday evening: One weapon after another, smart and tough, squeezing them for time and space. The big red wave kept rolling, playing less under pressure than with it -- welcoming it now -- pushed by the swell of pride from the thousands circling the ice and the arena and the city, too. Getzlaf, Boyle, Nash: The wave came at the Russians, pushed them under early, never allowed even the slightest bit of air.
On the 12-step road to recovery, they say the first task is to face and acknowledge reality. By that standard, Monday was a gilded day for Canada -- and I'm not talking primarily about the ice-dancing gold medal won by Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- How's this for anticipation? The Russian reporters here have been asking Canada about this match against Russia since Monday, when the home team still had to play Germany to get there. They've been asking Sidney Crosby: Are you disappointed that the dream final of Canada and Russia is going to happen much sooner? Crosby, of course, deflects, but once the brackets were decided, everybody realized just what was on. Yes, this is an earlier-than-expected meeting, but so was the Pittsburgh-Washington series last spring. That didn't make it any less epic.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- BLACK SUNDAY, ON ICE
VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The buzz around town surrounding what's being dubbed "Super Sunday" is palpable. Team USA defenseman Tim Gleason got a taste of it the other day, when he was riding in a Vancouver taxicab, and his driver -- evidently not much of a Carolina Hurricanes fan -- struck up a conversation.
VANCOUVER, B.C. -- Obviously they didn't tell the whole story of Canada at the Opening Ceremonies of the XXI Olympic Winter Games. A casual viewer of the pomp a week ago might have assumed these few acres of snow, as Voltaire once described New France, were populated only by dance-crazed native peoples and enthusiastic fiddlers. Clearly VANOC slighted the huge proportion of the Canadian population that is of Scandinavian extraction.
I want to be careful how I say this, lest I come off as an arrogant American casting stones from a house of crystal. For the fact is, the U.S. has staged two of the least satisfying Olympics ever: The 1996 Summer Games in Atlanta, a festival of tastelessness that had all the atmosphere of spring break; and the 1980 Winter Games, which made "organized by Lake Placid" a gag line among international sports officials and press for years. But the list of glitches at these Olympics, already long, grew by two on Tuesday.
VANCOUVER -- Operating in front of the most impressive sea of red since Moses, Team Canada took the hard way and then the easy way to dispatch Norway at a giddy Canada Hockey Place in the opener of the hockey Armageddon known as the Olympics.
VANCOUVER, B.C. -- If you think watching a 12-1 blowout isn't fun, Natalie Darwitz will tell you playing in one isn't all that enjoyable either.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The long national nightmare ended at precisely 6:18 p.m. PDT on a soothing Sunday when a scoreboard at the bottom of Cypress Mountain flashed the final standings. Canada exhaled. The man who brought such relief is preternaturally upbeat fellow named Alexandre Bilodeau, a moguls skier who bumped his way down a 250-meter course and into the sporting history of his country.
Canada's Olympic home losing streak began July 18, 1976, a day after the opening ceremonies in Montreal, trudged depressingly through Calgary 1988 and now stands at 0-for-244 as an expectant nation awaits the lighting of the cauldron for the XXI Olympic Winter Games.

After competing in the 1984 Winter Olympic Games in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia, as a member of Team Canada, I made USA Today's quote of the day by commenting on the notion of pro hockey players participating in the Olympics. In 25 years, a lot has changed -- not the least of which is there is no longer a Yugoslavia and NHL stars now dominate the Games. My old opinion, and my published quote, have vanished.
A year ago, goaltending appeared to be the one position that was nailed down for the Canadians as they began their preparations for the 2010 Winter Olympics. Martin Brodeur was the returning hero from the 2002 gold medal team. Roberto Luongo was the heir apparent. And some lucky youngster would earn a coveted seat at Canada Hockey Place to watch all the action from the stands.
CALGARY -- The vox populi in the Calgary Herald decided Monday in a result often associated with Soviet elections that the esteemed Jarome Iginla should be the next Captain Canada, the man with the scarlet letter (on the white uniforms) when a hockey-daft nation plays in the Olympics next February in Vancouver.

Jacques Lemaire, freshly named as an assistant coach for Canada's 2010 Olympic team after a coaching lifetime with his nose pressed to the window of Hockey Canada's old boy's club, peered into the television camera and said in French, "At last they understood" before cackling loudly at his own joke.
