Lexapro
Feb 17, 2012
... I'm amazed with all the views of this post that nobody has replied with a yes that they have successfully gotten off of an SSRI for good, after having taken it for an extended amount of time. Thats actually kind of scary. ... (8 replies)
... ngest I was ever on it was approximately a year and a half straight. I don't ever want to go on it again, and would love to remain pill free. I worry about the long term effects that have not been studied, and if the pill alters our brains chemistry permanently. ... (2 replies)
... panic attacks. I have had good experience with off and on use of xanax to stop panic in its tracks, and thought I'd try an SSRI to see if that would help on a long term basis. My Dr. prescribed me Celexa 10mg, which I have taken for the past four days. ... (1 replies)

... I think as someone who has tried the SSRI route and was unsuccessful his prescriptions while not the recommended first line treatment is one that many seasoned anxiety succeeded have had to do to survive (long term daily benzo use). His comments about alcohol and not making a follow up appointment is unacceptable. Get another doctor and you will have to make a personal... (2 replies)
... I agree. If it works then don't stop it, but you can definitely discuss your concerns with your doctor. My mother has been on Paxil for 10 years and it has slowly lost its potency for her, so maybe what you are starting to feel is a little anxiety starting to creep back in. It is possible that you may need to up your dose or give another med a try. Either way, talk with... (3 replies)
... I wouldn't worry about it. I took Paxil for several years and I was fine. I also know some people who have taken Paxil for 10 years. I am not sure if I can post a link to drug side effects but I don't recall of Paxil having anything major wrong with it. If your med is still working for your anxiety then continue to take it. Next time you see your therapist ask them they... (3 replies)
Zanax Tolerance

... t work for my anxiety but did help with my depression and ocd. I'm in therapy now and taking only xanax 0.5mg 4x daily and for me it is working wonders! No other SSRI or other drug has ever helped relieve my anxiety, panic and ocd like xanax and if it means long term use and increased dosing then so be it. ... (27 replies)
... or me was Xanax. It relaxes the entire nervous system enough to practically eliminate your anxiety. 3 months and counting and I am still a big advocate for the long term use of this drug. It has made my life infinitely better. ... (6 replies)
... effects that would acompany an SSRI for instance. Do understand that this medication was designed for long term use and not "as needed", however, it may get you through rough times and if it does then all the power to you. ... (13 replies)

... Most people GAIN weight on SSRI's when used over a long period of time. You will lose weight in the short term and quickly pile on the pounds the longer you use them. I gained 40lbs on Paxil and Celexa over a period of 4 years in spite of vigorous daily exercise and eating healthy. ... (3 replies)
... My only point is that Xanax is not meant to be a short term cure for anxiety and you probably won't be well when you quit. You will probably go right back to how you felt before you took the Xanax. ... (15 replies)
