Re: Prozac or Paxil? King of Nothing

It's always individual -- your mileage may vary -- but Paxil tends to be more sedating than Prozac. Is "sedating" the same as "anxiolytic?" Probably not. Is Prozac likely to be too anxiety provoking for you? No way to tell, except to try it.

If it sounds as though I'm not saying Paxil is a better choice for you, that's because I am not a big fan of the drug. Out of all the SSRIs, it's associated with the worst side effects. Only Luvox is more sedating. Common side effects include sleep disturbances, sexual dysfunction -- the worst of the SSRIs for this, they say -- weight gain, constipation, apathy, sedation... It's also contraindicated for anyone who might have a pregnancy in the near future -- male as well as female.

Is there any reason you're limiting your question to these two?
