I'm currently on Lexapro 20mg, but there are times I feel anxious and depressed, and times I feel good. I'm still currently on phrase of moving on from my guilt relationship with a girl. But when I'm alone and don't have work I just get depressed, anxious, and get obsessive thoughts. I'm a active worker nearly everyday. Right now I'm thinking of switching back to Paxil or try Effexor for Depression, Anxiety and OCD. I'm also user of Abilify (20mg) Klonopin (0.50 mg-1 mg as needed/emergency) and Buspar (60 mg). I've been in this journey for awhile and I could use some well experience people with depression with failed and guilt relationships along with medication and coping the fact I have Asperger's Syndrome
Hi, I'm a user of SSRI medication and I've nearly tried them all except Celexa?

Did the Paxil work better for you than the Lexapro? Effexor is an SNRI so it may work for you. It's usually started at 37.5 XR mgs for 2 weeks & then if tolerated it is given at 75 mgs for another 2 weeks, then upped to 150 mgs. I'm med sensitive so right now I'm having SEs of sweating & fatigue w/Effexor XR at 37.5 mgs. However, it's supposed to be good for treatment-resistant depression. With these meds, it's so harrd w/all the trial & error.
Gonzobdd; Really you are up against the trial and error with this medication being you have tried all these others, I really dough that Celexa would do any good, And as your doctor is already doing many of us have to use several different medications's to control all of these symptoms, And it sounds like a good therapist would do you some good to get rid of the guilt that you can't seem to get out of your head. There are so many different things they can do yet so don't give in. Many people find lots of relief and their medications seem to work better when you are putting yourself through too much and learning things like controlling your ideas, Along with the medication. we can be our own worse enemies at times. Best of luck to you.
