Dr. Bob & others - your opinion re SSRIs

Posted by paul frank on February 23, 1999, at 19:19:26

I suffer from GAD with some symptoms of depression. My doc first put me on prozac 20mg. After 4 weeks, the depressive symptoms had improved, but the anxiety continued, so she switched me to Zoloft. I have been at 100 mg for two weeks now and depressive symptoms have not returned, but I remain anxious and worried. I have had minimal side effects from both drugs, other than excessive nervousness. In your opinion, if Zoloft doesn't work, should we go to a third SSRI (my doc says she will next try Paxil) or would it make more sense to switch to another class of anti-depressant (ie Effexor? Serzone?) My main problem has always been GAD.

Thank you for your response.
