Newest are cleanest: Each new generation of SSRIs is supposedly cleaner than originals. Lexapro or Celexa may be worth trying. Also, Paxil (paroxetine) is less activating than Zoloft or Prozac. All of,these meds have early side effects which disappear when you get used to them. For that reason, a one day trials,of any of these drugs is not enough to either get past side effects or gain therapeutic benefits.
