> >I've tried all the SSRI's(except paxil), a couple of tri's and nardil. Paxil is my last hope of treating, treatment resistant GAD/Social Anxiety and mild OCD disorders. Can anyone relate or give a success story regarding paxil and anxiety, it would be much appreciated. Make one up if you have to(just joking) thanks, House
> As someone with panic disorder and agoraphobia (can't get much more anxious than that) I found none of the SSRI's to be helpful - actually made everything much, much worse. The MAOI's were a God send. I started first on Nardil and for the first time in my life felt normal. I eventually switched to Parnate. I attempted to get back on Parnate just last week (after a 4 yr. break with few symptoms) and responded adversely to it physically. I'm on my way to the doc to try Nardil again. How long did you try it? Would you consider other MAOI's? Although they're not as popular and don't have the big pharmaceutical companies promoting them I believe they do the best job for anxiety disorders. They also work wonders on the phobic response as well.

>>>I'm on my third day of paxil so I will probably give it some time. I tried Nardil for about 6 weeks. First two weeks made me very depressed, next week were great and then it seemed to poop out and I was at the max. dosage level. I probably should of stayed with it or tried to augment it with something else. The problem with trying nardil or another maoi would be the wash out period. The ssri's are useless to me except for the fact that keep my panic disorder at bay. I have to ride the subway everday for work and if I'm not taking one of the SSRI's I get situation panic attacks. I would load up on klonopins but they effect my short term memory and make me depressed. Did you find parnate to work as well as Nardil? The reason I ask is because our conditions sound very simular.

Thanks for the response
