For GAD, BuSpar (buspirone): Buspar (buspirone) works on its own in gad. If you do not have depression, then you may be able to come off the Paxil and just use the Buspar (buspirone) for gad. I always dose this conservatively: Buspar (buspirone) 5mg twice a day for one week, the 10mg twice a day for one week then 15 mg twice a day after that. I hope you feel better soon. Håper du vil føle deg bedre! (i love your city. My relatives came from south of oslo.).

Can help: Yes, adding wellbutrin (bupropion) can help for some with the sexual side effects of prozac.

75 mg x 7 days: From 150 mg, you can probably cut in half to 75 mg for 7 days, then stop completely.
