> I have always had very busy and sometimes ruminating thoughts. Sometimes this works very creatively, sometimes it pulls me so far away from what is happening in the outside world that I can't focus on what other people (like my family, who I love) are saying to me. Last year I became depressed as well as having a busy head, and started taking Paxil. I have never felt so serene! Unfortunately, I had the infamous sexual dysfunction. I have since tried Serzone (didn't work) Effexor (terrible headaches) and am now starting Wellbutrin sr.(which is giving me tinnitis, anxiety, insomnia...) When I was totally off Paxil, but not yet on Wellbutrin I DID not feel depressed, but my head was its usual busy distractable mode, and I had insomnia. My doctor refers to it as anxiety, yet I don't feel worried. He calls the "stuck in my head" thing depression, but I dont feel sad. Is there anything that treats the busy head thing like Paxil? Or is the trade off that I can have sex or serenity, but not both? Thanks, Linda

You should be able to have both Linda. I know, from my experience, busy heads can be caused from anxiety, being bipolar or ADD. Sometimes the best way to find out is to try the various medications your psychiatrist suggests. Has he suggested any anti-anxiety pills?

Good luck,
