> In order from beginning to current:
> Zoloft - nada, nothing, didn't help me at all
> Prozac - felt paranoid and cut off from emotions
> Paxil - 20mg up to 60mg at the end. Nice little AD, helped me alot with stress and coping with ADHD son. Didn't like the sexual SE's though. First AD that people close to me could tell if I had taken my meds or not by my behavior. Did suffer some withdrawal when stopping it.
> Wellbutrin - 300mg, Very nice AD for mild-moderate depression. Zero SE's for me but the positive effects were gradual. Probably helped with my ADD/ADHD symptoms though I didn't realize it at the time.

> Effexor - <drum roll> 300mg, love it, saved my sanity. Better for anxiety than depression I think. All SE's went away except the sexual ones.
> Strattera - 80mg, helps me focus.
> Trazadone - 100mg, helps me sleep.

Hi KimDi how are you doing today? This board has definitely given me a lot of great info. Also gives you the feeling that other people know what you are going through. I have been on so many meds during the years and effexor did seem to be the best one for anxiety and depression. I have tapered off because no longer works for me. How long have you been on effexor? Worked for me for 7 years. Also came off because I want to have a baby in the near future. The 50 of zoloft is working for me somewhat.
I am in the middle of effexor withdrawals which are not fun - have you heard of anything else that helps with withdrawal? I take 1 benadryl a day which seems to get rid of flu like feeling and nausea -
cheers,
Mary
