It's different for everyone, that's why there's several.
1. Paxil failed me.So What has been the most effective SSRI for your anxiety and/or depression?
Failed in the case of SSRIs for me means produced ZERO positive effect even at high doses (300 mg in the case of Zoloft, for example). All produced sexual side effects, though they differed from one SSRI to another. Paxil leaves sex drive intact, but makes it impossible to orgasm. Zoloft allows me to still orgasm, but why would I care to when it totally kills sex drive -- now that's a cruel irony, isn't it? One won't let you get off, while the other will let you, but you no longer want to!:mumwhat do you mean by 'failed you'? side effects, more anxiety? jw
Thanks for the article. Now I know that Zoloft & Lexapro, which I both deem worse than useless, are as good as it gets. That in itself is enough to make one depressed.
Do you know of anybody for whom that tactic has worked?Then request it on a short term basis, for "benzo detox". And if it works wonders for your anxiety in general you will get your Pdoc to prescribe it to you longterm.
