My wife was recently diagnosed with GAD. We have tried both Paxil and Celexa with similiar responses. The Paxil worked well with reducing anxiety but, like the Celexa, it resulted in decreased labedo, nausea, and a tired, run-down feeling. She took the paxil for 3-months but switched to Clelexa due to its side effects. She has since been on Celexa for 4-weeks without any positive signs and many negative (sleepy, run-down, depressed, withdrawn).
She is now seeing a Psychotherapist along with a Psychiatrist as is suggested. I have read in research that doctors have tried a combination of doses to combat the anxiety and the medications side effects with positive results. Is this so? Also, I have read about Buspar and Effexor, are these medications any good? Thank you for any Advice.
