... Lexapro also works great for my anxiety. I switched from Celexa to Lexapro because with Celexa I was tired all the time. I don't remember having any major side effects in the beginning. (14 replies)
... I have taken prednisone in the makes me feel GREAT although that is not something that can be taken long term. Is there any anti-depressant that make you actually feel good without feeling tired? (14 replies)
... Does any of it cause sleepiness? Don't want that!! Do any of them have any possible side effects? Don't want that either! I don't want to take something that will help one thing but may cause numerous other things ya know? (14 replies)

... Mushroomie how long have you been taking Zoloft for now? (18 replies)
... I was on Lexapro last year and it seemed to put weight on me. Then I tried several other AD and found Zoloft and that one took the weight off. I was also on Remeron part of the time I was on Lexapro. After I stopped the Remeron I lost a little weight but really not that much. I think it really depends on the person and how the medication will react with your body chemistry. Oh... (18 replies)

... Thank you Mushroomie. I am leaning toward requesting a switch from Klonopin to Xanax. I noticed that there is now a Xanax XR, which should resolve the problem of the med wearing off too quickly. I have the same problem with Klonopin. It works for about 3 hrs, obviously not long enough to stretch through the day. As far as the addictive problem, that's not a primary... (19 replies)

Peace Mushroomie (9 replies)

... Hello, Just thought I would add to your post, When my anxiety is really bad I get a burning sensation in my shoulders and my back (like a indian burn or a carpet burn) its not a very good feeling that is for sure. And sometimes it can last for days. I haven't had that feeling in a few years but I have been on meds now for a few years too LOL Oh well just thought I... (60 replies)
... Okay here is my story hope this might help you out a bit. I took Paxil for one day I was fine when I first took it and then about 2hrs later I went into full panic attack and I had to take real short breaths (like panting) I think I had a very bad allergic reaction to it. It was really really bad! So I stopped that right away. So any ways I decided to go to a pdoc then a... (19 replies)
... I too also have the burning sensation when my anxiety is really up there I have it on my arms and my shoulders. Its kind of like getting a indian burn when we were kids. or maybe getting rug burn, LOL I really hate it but at least it is a sign that I might be going to have a anxiety attack so I guess its a good thing for a warning. But I sure hate that feeling! Your not... (31 replies)
