Re: need meds again I think

In reply to need meds again I think, posted by teek30 on July 29, 2005, at 10:26:54

It really depends. Some people need more and some less. If you have anxiety it often takes more than just depression alone. I used to take 50mg (a pain b/c pills only come in 10, 20, 40 so I had to take 2 pills). Some people find Effexor helpful. It is in a different class of drugs than you have tried before, but it is approved for both depression and generalized anxiety. I have never tried it though, so I can't speak from personal experience.


> Let me first just say my depression has come back again, about 4 weeks or so after quitting SSRI's. I suffer from depression that comes and go and now to add to it the fact that I cant seem to do without the meds. I also suffer somewhat from Generalized Anxiety
> Here's my past
> Prozac-took briefly, too stimulating for me
> Paxil-love it, but kills my sex drive and modivation
> Zoloft-I think my favorite as it does everything "ok" but the side effects weren't too bad
> Lexapro-I think something like paxil with less sexual side effects but easily as much weight gain
> I HATE making cocktails for this stuff-its expensive and just dont like the idea of taking more than 1 pill. Perhaps I will just go back to Zoloft at a small dosage of 50-75mgs
> Does anyone know the smallest theraputic dose for paxil however? Just curious
> Thanks-this is my first post here
