Re: Why an SNRI for anxiety? SLS

I reacted badly to Paxil - the first A/D I ever tried: sweats, shakes. I've avoided Prozac & Zoloft partly based on that experience & partly based on my ex-wife's: She called Prozac the "mad" drug (like permanent PMS), Zoloft the "sad" drug, and Paxil finally worked for her, to the point that she has not needed it for some years now (maybe since we separated? ;-)

Serzone was my initial salvation, Lexapro is the only SSRI I've tolerated well, but none of the SSRI's and SNRIs deal adequately with my GAD, Buspar helped (esp. w/Serzone) in reducing stress-triggered depression, but it didn't seem to work with Cymbalta, so I dropped it. May be time for a fresh look.
