> Sertraline doesn't produce any cognitive debilitation for me. In a study with elderly folks, it actually improved cognition. The SSRI's usually don't impair cognition much, if at all. When I was starting up fluvoxamine (Luvox), it made me terribly slow at work, but that disappeared once my brain got used to the drug.
i guess i shouldn't been more patient, though i did give each SRI the requisite 8 weeks. Lexapro and Luvox, in particular, made me feel really foggy; Prozac was neutral, though the sleep disruption at 20mg produced more cognitive s/e's overall.
