> Hey everybody,
> Hope everybody is well. Today is my first day without Celexa - I was taking it for two weeks (only 10 mgs./day) for GAD and panic attacks. It definitely made me feel much worse! I had one of the most severe panic attacks that I have ever experienced two days ago, and decided that it was time to part ways with the Celexa. I was taking Paxil (again, only 10 mgs./day) about 6 months ago and felt complete relief, but had to stop for excessive weight gain.
> My doc wants me to try Zoloft now - but I feel that I've become SSRI-shy after this experience! Any advice people? And how long should I wait before I start Zoloft if I decide to go for it? I'm looking for to hearing from you...

Daniel, It sounds like you are sensitive to SSri's that are more *activating*. Paxil is pretty sedative in comparison to Celexa and Zoloft. Some people find Celexa makes them more *wired* then Zoloft and vice versa. It is too bad you couldn't stick with the Paxil since it was working for you. As far as weight gain goes, I have heard people hear squawk about weight gain from all of them (SSRI's)-although Paxil is the one that gets blamed the most. I wonder if your doctor couldn't maintain the Paxil and add something to ameliorate the weight gain (if that's possible)??
