For me I had the best response to Paxil. I was more extroverted and social. I felt more confident and felt like I was manic quite a few times. Paxil was the best experience of any anti-depressant I tried, but after a while it pooped out on me and didn't work when I tried it again. Whereas, for other people I've heard Paxil made their anxiety much worse and unbearable. Therefore showing that meds don't necessarily work the same way for everyone.
The only way to know how something works is to try one and wait it out.
