What medications are there for depressions (GAD and/or social anxiety)? I’ve taken sertraline but it doesn’t work well for me.

      Lexapro was the first medicine I tried and so far it's working well for me. There are a lot of potential side effects that not everyone will be ok with, and I know Lexapro doesn't work for everyone. My prescriber started me on a very low dose to see how I reacted to it before putting me on a higher dose. Maybe try that?

      Cymbalta works best for me and I’m sensitive to meds

      There’s many! A good medication for anxiety is well Butron. Ones for depression that didn’t work for me but may work for you are Lexapro, Prozac, And abilify. Good luck!

      I've tried a lot of antidepressants, ssris, mood stabilizers from a young age. I've tried prozac, lexapro, Zoloft, buspar, and a lot of others. if you have any questions about those you can feel free to ask me.

      gabapentin helps both my nerve pain and depression/anxiety. I also smoke weed which helps tons. I also take amitriptyline
