I actually don't think I've ever seen a certified psychologist. I've always seen "therapists". Do you really think there is more benefit to seeking out a full blown psychologist?


> I always needed 40-60mg paroxetine for it to be effective for my anxiety and OCD. I missed a lot of classes because I couldn't get out of bed!

I remember once, about 10 years ago, when my girlfriend wanted to go shopping and I said ok. About 5 minutes later she was waking me up by yelling at me, because the Paxil I was taking had made me dose off. It was embarrassing.


> Have you tried desipramine? It's quite similar to lofepramine. Lofepramine is not available in the US. I've been lucky not to have any side effects.

The only tricyclic type med I've ever tried was Anafranil, and I wasn't too fond of it. I have heard of desipramine, though. I have always been quite dubious of being able to take another tricyclic without incurring massive side-effects, as well as withdrawl upon discontinuation.
