    Went through many trials w/different meds...this one proved to be the most effective. I've tried going off of it after five years, but can't get along w/o it.

    Last week my Dr. upped me to 60mg instead of 40mg. I am having bad dizziness, almost unable to walk,slight fever, ears hurt a bit and I'm sweating very badly. I don't know if it's an ear problem or the medication.

    After Prozac didn't work out due to side effects, my doctor prescribed Paxil. It had no side effects except some constipation, and since I have IBS with diarrhea, that was a welcome change! It kept me functional, but I never felt it truly eased my symptoms of depression, even at 50 mg./day. Maybe it helped a little, but it's hard to say.

    Worst experience of my life. It made me severly depressed. I laid in bed for over a week. All I did was cry, pull my hair, and had a severe compulsions to take showers. 14 a day! and an internal itch that made me claw at my face. I couldnt explain the expreience I went through on this awful medicine that I wouldnt recommend to my worst enemy.
