Psych thinks the Prozac will be more helpful for my social anxiety. Plus i have been off work for 4months due to my depression and anxiety.Any advice would be appreciated.I currently take Zyprexa,5mg and Prozac,10mg, while weaning off of Lexapro for 4days now. I have read that Prozac and Zyprexa work well for some.

I personally don't advize Prozac because of a bad experience I had with it, it made me suicidal and homicidal, now keep in mind this don't happen to everyone so do what the pros say. Just some advice have someone keep there eyes and ears open for you for awhile to make sure your o.k. I don't want to hear of another person getting worse on that stuff I'll be thinking of you keep in touch. What works best for me is Paxil 40mg once daily, it's great with anxiety and depression. Lexapro I found to be useless so I'm not surprised they want to try something new for you. Paxil will always be my favorite some people don't like that either and swear by Prozac, it's a matter of trial and error. Good luck Mark hope it helps

Your Psych should know and change you over safely. I would think because you are being changed, shows that your care taker is hearing you and looking for a better product to help you
