Re: SSRIs-most, least sedating

The only SSRI I've been on is Paxil CR 25mg and I don't find it sedating at all. Maybe it's because of the continuous release formula, maybe the regular Paxil is more sedating. I have some friends who take it, and they've said that it's sedating at first, but in some cases it wears off and in others it's fine if taken at bedtime. Michele

Re: SSRIs-most, least sedating

I found Celexa and Lexapro least sedating. I found Trazadone and Serzone most sedating. Everyone reacts different ly.

I too found lexapro sedating - more so than paxil.

Re: SSRIs-most, least sedating

sedation varies a lot from person to person

some are stimulated by antidepressant meds

if sedated, take before bed, if stimulated, take on waking
