hi. im not a big fan of antidepressants, but I did find standard dose (20mgs) celexa helpful for an intense bout of agitated depression. only problem...after 6 months or so, it was a bit too calming, especially with an 'atypical' tranquilizer on board, so I dropped it.

prozac was oddly stimulating. not in a way that made me feel euphoric or even helped with concentration, just...jittery, kind of disconcerting sort of stimulation. having said that, Prozac has a wide dosage range and the long half life often makes tapering a lot easier.

i think i mention Surmontil (trimipramine) in another response to one of your posts. its a tca, but its sedating, calming...I think its chemically somewhat similar to clozapine, but it isn't nearly as toxic.

zoloft was horrible for me, too. i basically had agitation plus frontal lobe syndrome. it wasn't until after i tapered that i realized how horrible it was...the nastiness kind of snuck up on me.

adding buspirone to antidepressants sometimes helps bring about reductions in anxiety plus a more robust response. i didn't think much of it myself, but buspirone is cheaper and less toxic than 'atypical' tranquilizers, so I would think it might be worth a try.

hope this helps.
