Different drugs for different symptoms?

Posted by adamie on July 14, 2001, at 14:56:21

I am currently suffering from a major depression which limits my emotions, severely limits my ability to concentrate, my memory, and generally my intelligence. Also I have lost most of my creativity. My depression doesn't really have an anxiety component and I am able to sleep well and eat well. I have been on Paxil for 19 days. Perhaps that has helped with previous symptoms of not being able to eat, and difficulty falling back to sleep after waking in the middle of the night, which have been solved.

What I am wondering is do different classes or types of anti depressants better suited for different symptoms? I have very little of the guilt and feelings of worthlessness. I eat and sleep okay. I just have severe lack of emotions and the ability to think and concentrate. Would certian types of drugs be better suited for these particular symptoms?

Would drugs that work for norepinephrine and dopamine perhaps be better suited than an srri for my specific symptoms? Thanks for reading
