Re: What's the strongest SSRI for SA?
I don't think there is any strongest SSRI for SA -- if there is I sure haven't seen any studies comparing SSRIs for efficacy (in SA nor any other disorders).
I suspect this, like so many drug issues, can only be answered with YMMV.
Paxil will be a common answer you'll get simply because way back in 2000 they were the first drug to ever get FDA approval for treatment of SA and they went wild with what must have been the largest psych med direct-to-consumer marketing campaign ever talking about how it was the magic pill for SA. That alone will forever link Paxil & SA, even though it all has to do with marketing and in no way suggests that it's the best for SA. My experience: Paxil sucks, being nothing but an anti-orgasm pill.
DEA agents, being on par with Nazi war criminals, should be executed for crimes against humanity. They are guilty of inflicting mass suffering upon legitimate patients.
