Help finding a med that doesn't make me nauseaus!!

I am very sensative in general to taking medication and am trying to find an anxiety med that doesn't make me so sick. I can handle a little nausea - especially since I am told that gets better with time - but so far it has been more than a little. I know everyone is different - but thought I woud ask if anyone here had any luck with a specific drug after having the same issue. So far I have tried Lexapro and Pristiq - and I did half the dose to try that too. Thanks so much in advance!

I take name brand Prozac, 15mg a day, and I have had no problem so far. I tried Zoloft for a little more than a month, and my nauseausa was killing me! So I switched to Prozac which I took once for 3 months before. Both times I don't have any problems.

Good luck to you!

Re: Help finding a med that doesn't make me nauseaus!!

People react differently to meds - I have never considered myself sensitive to any med, however, I've been on Lexapro 5 ML for 5 weeks and can hardly eat - nothing looks or tastes good and usually I have a great appetite. My loss of appetite and nausea is pretty bad - mostly in the mornings. Good luck to you! How long have you been on the Lexapro?

To be honest, the best ones I've seen so far are celexa and wellbutrin, neither of these have caused nausea in either myself or my best friend. 5 weeks is long ebough to know for sure, I'd ask my doctor to come off of them and try something new.

For me it has been Zoloft. I tried Celexa and Paxil, and both killed my stomach.
I never tried Lexapro, since it is close to Celexa, and if Celexa killed my stomach Lexapro probably would also.

Re: Help finding a med that doesn't make me nauseaus!!

Paxil worked great for me for years. I went off of it and went on Zoloft because it is safer if you get pregnant (wasn't planning to but not really working too hard to prevent it) and Paxil was terrible when I would run out if I couldn't get to the pharmacy (weird zap things in my head).

I quit the zoloft about a year ago, and just now went back on it.

The Zoloft makes me very dizzy and nauseated, and I've lost ten pounds in the 3 weeks I've been on it.

Try xanax...gets rid of anxiety and very minimal side nausea..maybe a little tired so very good if you need to sleep at night
