> > I have bad anxiety, worry, and ocd. I have a hard time tolerating meds but life is not good right now. I am med sensitive so am a little confused how to start lyrica if that is what my pdoc and I decide. What do you all suggest? I am feeling terrible.
> -- 75mg BID for 2 days, 150mg BID for another 2 days than 300mg BID... this should be enough to make Anna Nicole Smith looking good again... if you know what I'm sayin ;)
> > I may try anafranil but I am really scared as ssri's make me feel so anxious. The only ssri I may consider is celexa.
> -- I see. If SSRI makes you anxious then you're right about Celexa and might want to avoid Paxil since it will hit too much on some buttons anxious people like us doesn't like too much to be pressed. IF you have the extra money, I would suggest that you choose Lexapro over Celexa. It, as you may already know, is the improved form of Celexa. Some says that it's only a matter of less Side-Effects while others (like me) thinks it works better. This has to do with is "Allosteric" nature/mechanism.
> Wish you luck.. and if you didn't, dont forget to clear out all the possible physiological causes of depression/anxiety. Is a big job and may cost a lot of cash, energy and time... but can you imagine only to have to take high dose magnesium or something like that ? .. wow.. you would be happy, side effects free AND Anna Nicole Smith would keep looking like she is... dead ugly. :|
> sorry for the disturbing humour of mine :)
> Plz post your concern in a NEW thread.. it well deserve to have everybody attentions and so you could receive a lot more CLEVER answers ;)
> Keep up the fight,
Please forgive my dear friend Marty's bizare sense of humor ;) I doubt a pdoc will let you titrate as fast as Marty recommended, however a fast titrate is okay with Lyrica...You may feel a little drunk/euphoric for the first couple of weeks, but what the hell's wrong with that, right? :) Good luck!!!
