Re: Anxiety Meds
Jul 12, 2008
I have tried Prozac and Wellbutrin with no success. For me the side effects were horrible. I know Prozac works well because my sister has been really successful with it. It just made my anxiety go to such an elevated level as well as my blood pressure. It was not worth continuing on it.

I am on Lexapro now with Klonopin at night or as needed during the day. My dose of Lexapro for the first 2 weeks has been .5mg. I just increased to to 10mg last night per my dr's request. I take 0.5mg of Klonopin at night and break that in half if I need something to take the edge off during the day. It is really too soon to tell if the Lexapro will be successful for me. I tried just the Klonopin and it stopped working for me or perhaps I just had too much stress for it to really be effective. I could not take a higher dose because it just made me so sleepy. I am really sensitive to meds. I also tried Xanax XR and I didn't care for the way I felt on that. I have also used Xanax in the past and it's good but not for long term use.

I hope you find something that works for you. It sometimes just takes trying a few things until you find the right one for you. It's true what everyone says on this board- what works for one might not work for another.

On a side note... My brother took Buspar for GAD for 5 years and did great!
