OK. I do take this seriously. Very much so.
5 weeks is a long time. Who was it that told me I could use Remeron inbetween- I thought it was one of you guys. I will do some checking to see what I can do in the meantime.
Hey, how about this? Take my paxil or zoloft for three weeks, then stop for two weeks until starting MAOI? This would be 5 week prozac washout period. . .But, is the combination of other drugs in my system adding to an increased washout period?
Boy, that prozac is something. I feel high, giddy. . .this med gives me mild mania- I had forgotten about that ( I took this many years ago). If I remember correctly, It does this for awhile then CRASHES and makes me feel worse than ever. The other SSRI's make me feel zoned out and tired/lazy.
Interesting. Do any of the MSOI's have these same side effects? Apathy? Mania (or mild mania for me)? Racing thoughts?
Would eithr one work well for anxiety/agitation? How about for motivation? (I have trouble with all three areas)
