SSRI: which one is the most sedating (besides Paxil)

I found lexapro sedating. I would come home from school and fall asleep from it.

Probably Luvox in most people if I remember the numbers correctly

it needs to be remembered that any antidepressant med can sedate 1 person, stimulate another and have no effect on a third

Lexapro can be stimulating if taken at 10 mg or higher but taken at 5 mg, can work very well. It does help anxiety more than the other ssri's I've tried. But everyone is different'
