I know there is such thing as a SSRI "poop out" from what I have heard and read about on the internet. I was on Paxil CR 12.5 for a long time and felt like it didn't have the same effect so I went to Paxil CR 25 and everything seemed to work. Welll after tapering off a few times successfully I got back on and noticed that it didn't feel the same so I decided to switch to Lexapro. Lexapro wasn't a drug for me. Actually increased my anxiety. Now I am going back to Paxil. Probably headed for Paxil CR 37.5mg. Should this fix the problem? I have my first Psychiatrist appointment ever on Monday and just wanted to see if that had worked in others after they have poop out feelings. Does increasing the dose usually solve the problem?
