Discussions that mention paxil

Anxiety board


Okay, I have been on Paxil for a month, and had to get off of it because of the adverse side effects. Then months later I tried Lexapro and had the same sensations. I felt I may have some reaction to SSRI's. I went to my Physc. today and explained that the Lexapro game me the same uncomfortable sensation as the Paxil did. She told me we will have to keep looking until we find something that works so she wants me to try Zoloft. I asked her if she has seen people that have had adverse reactions to SSRI's and she replied that ever drug is different and every person is different. I trust her advice as a doctor so I will do what she says. My Question is...Am I wasting my time trying another SSRI, Zoloft, after the last 2 created unbearable side effects?
Hi,

I couldn't handle Prozac yet I found Paxil a great help.

I believe it is correct that intolerance to a specific SSRI doesn't mean that you will be intolerant to them all.

I hope you find the right treatment for you soon.

Kind wishes
