Hello! I really don't know about allergic reactions and ssri's, however, since these AD's are all in the same "class", wouldn't it make sense that if you were allergic to one, you would be allergic to all? This would be an excellent question for your doctor or even your pharmacist. There is an older class of AD's called Tricyclics that you might try if you do turn out to allergic to SSRI's.
Hi There. Are you the same member who was taking Advair - a posting from back in 2003? If so, I would love to know if you throat constriction symptoms disappeared, and how.
Are you taking the generic version of Prozac or the brand? There are times that a patient will experience skin rashes from one of the other components that make up the drug. I end up sticking with the brand name of some medications so there is a consistency when you fill your prescription.
When I do find a generic brand that does work, I stick with that generic made by the specific manufacturer. You can ask your pharmacist for the name of the manufacturer who makes the generic brand you currently take and request that brand each time.
CVS orders my specific generic brand in when I need my refill. I just request the name.
I do have a friend who also rashed from many of the SSRI's and is doing well on Lexapro. You could also consider the family of drugs that are tetracyclics - mirtazapine or Remeron might be effective for you.
Good luck in your search...
