Is lexapro stimulating or sedating Fem dom free chat
It sounds like you may need MORE, not less, of the paxil. Many times a person has to try more than one med to get it right. Hopefully Ryan or someone else will post regarding your medication issue.I was taken off Paxil nearly three years ago by a psychiatrist, who used about a six week taper.Most antidepressants relieve depression by affecting these neurotransmitters.Each type (class) of antidepressant affects these neurotransmitters in slightly different ways.At first I suffered a lot of disorientation and insomnia, then it evolved into intense depression, constant anxiety, and worse anxiety attacks. It's three years later and I'm still in constant anxiety, my phobias are way worse, and deeply depressed, so I ended up with three problems where I was only being originally treated for one.
The others I tried (Effexor, Wellbutrin, Buspar, Lexapro) made me feel better but never as good as Paxil.
Most antidepressants are generally safe, but the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires that all antidepressants carry black box warnings, the strictest warnings for prescriptions.
In some cases, children, teenagers and young adults under 25 may have an increase in suicidal thoughts or behavior when taking antidepressants, especially in the first few weeks after starting or when the dose is changed.
They either had no effect or the averse effects outweighed the positive (zoloft kept me afloat by making me numb to all feelings altogether). I tried Lexapro, Paxil, and Cymbalta before I found the Prozac.
Finally, in 2003, I was in a study for treatment resistant depression and Lexapro quite literally saved my life. The other thing about the SSRI's is that they take about a month to start working.
I have tried Lexapro, Zoloft, Abilify, Risperdal (which I was allergic too) and a whole sleu of other anti-depressants. However, if you are on an anti-depressant (SSRI) like paxil or prozac, it can cause sexual disfunction.
