I’m currently on Prozac, but tried many different medications. What medications seem to work best on you?
Nausea and Vomiting
Anxiety (Including GAD)
For me, Cymbalta worked best, but only actual name-brand Cymbalta. As soon as my insurance stopped covering the name brand, I started taking generic and it did not work, or at least didn’t work at the same dosage. That was 7 years ago and I haven’t been the same since. I’m on Effexor now (generic) and I’d say it has me at about 70% of where I was when I was on name-brand Cymbalta. I’m interested in trying Prozac b/c I have an Aunt who’s been on it for 35 years and swears by it.
I was on Prozac but it didn’t work for me so my doctor switched me to Celexa and I feel great!
Cymbalta (generic) seems to work well for me. I also have been on Prozac (didn't help), Lexapro (worked for a year then had to up my dose and it made me very apathetic), Buspar (made me dizzy), Hydroxyzine (made me fall asleep), and Vybrid (gave me nausea and stomaches).
I have been on Celexa, Prozac, and now Zoloft. I have been on Zoloft for the longest (7 years) and I have actually been able to stop other meds. There is a lab test that some doctors do that can help pinpoint what family of medication will be most likely to help, so if you want a new medicine I would maybe ask your doctor about the test
I've been on Paxil Cr for 30 years. Works good for me🙌💕
dont ever try to come off paxil unless you want severe withdrawls! Be careful, thirty years idk what would happen!! Bc i took it for four months straight and inwent through it :(
So far Paxil and Seroquel have been helping me.
be careful of Sarah call I was on that for sleep at three times a day cause my tongue to swell up and my throat to close
My gabapentin and Ativan as needed
Cymbalta ! ✋
Yes I had a withdraw the pharmacy couldn't find any for almost a week the withdraw is a horrible but so far it works for anxiety still a little unbalanced cuz I have schizophrenia too and I'm not treated for that I'm looking into alternate treatments🤗
i tried prozac and for me it didn’t help at all. a year later and now i’m on zoloft and it has helped me a lot, just overtime it starts to wear off and i need to get the dose lifted.
