Well, I can see why you'd be reluctant to try SSRIs again, but I do think it might be worth trying a much lower dose... of Lexapro or Zoloft. Since you are very sensitive to the toxicity of these drugs for whatever reason, it is possible that a very low dose may turn out to be therapeutic. Whatever standard doses are doing, it's not what you need.

You could consider Lexapro, 2.5mg/day initially, then 5mg after a couple of weeks, if 2.5mg was well tolerated. For Zoloft, you could try 12.5mg initially, then potentially 25mg if tolerated. I don't know what your doctor would think of this strategy. It is at least a very simple thing for you to try.


I have heard of it yes. In fact, I was discussing it with Hello123 above.

>Risperidone was lowest dose possible then cut in half and it caused severe rage/anger

Are risperidone and mirtazapine the only drugs to cause this anger in you?
