Thanks. I've spent a lot of time today researching meds, so I think I am relatively prepared to have a good discussion with the pdoc next week. After 7 weeks, I don't believe Celexa is working for me, particularly for the debilitating anxiety, so that's the first topic of discussion. I did so well in terms of anxiety and mood when I was on Paxil (wish I had just continued on the small maintenance dose I was taking). Perhaps the Paxil CR might work where the regular Paxil didn't the second time around. I am also going to ask about augmenting to try to alleviate the adhedonia I am experiencing, which is frightening in and of itself. The things I have identified as possible augmenters are: Adrafinil; Provigil; Gabapentin and Lyrica. The problem I face is that the pdoc I see, although he is extremely knowledgable and experienced, is, I think, somewhat conservative, and may not be too keen on augmenting or prescribing anything that might be considered off-label use. Oh well, it can't hurt to try. As for going off the drugs, I didn't have a problem stopping Paxil (at least I didn't notice any withdrawals). Stopping Effexor was a different story, but I am over that now. Anyway, sorry to ramble.

Take care, and good luck to you in finding a med that works.


> Let us know what you try and how you do on it. Sounds like you don't get too bad going on and off these drugs so that is a big plus in your favor and should make the searching at least not as bad as it could be. I am also trying to find a med so I feel for you.
