In reply to Which antidepressant to use for ADD/Soc. Anx/Dep.?, posted by utopizen on April 25, 2004, at 16:43:18
> I've tried Effexor at 400mg for several months, Celexa for several months, and Paxil I guess I stopped b/c it was causing insomnia... I'm about to see a sleep psychiatrist who will likely place me on Provigil+Straterra to "streamline" all these issues, but also would like to possibly add on an antidepressant now or down the road.
> I'm thinking Paxil... how come that's not so popularly mentioned on this board? Everyone seems to be on Lexapro, what's up with that? It's either that or Zoloft, but I'm afraid Zoloft would make me tired...
I'm on Paxil...you're worried that Zoloft would make you tired, but if it didn't I'm sure Paxil would. I'm on Paxil CR, which seems to have less side-effects than the original. Have you tried Wellbutrin? I've heard of it being used for ADD, social anxiety and depression.
