First week taking 10 mg of Paxil and my anxiety is worse. I was told that it gets worse before it gets better and takes a couple of weeks to notice?
I took Paxil for a couple of years and stopped me from being able to have erections. Will they return?
Can I take a Lexapro until I can get my script refilled for my Paxil if I'm not feeling well and have a couple days i have to wait?
In your opinion, what's the best medicaition for severe ocd. I've tried Paxil and Lexapro to no avail. This is just a question, not seeking meds onlin?
OCD: I don't think that there is one best medication. Most of the ssri's can be effective. I have used zoloft a lot for ocd. Anafranil which is actually a tricyclic antidepressant (older class) can also be helpful. You & your physician may need some trials before you get just the right medication (s). Take care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Have tried pristiq, wellbutrin, paxil, celexa, effexor, lexapro, etc. With lithium, haliperidol &abilify. A couple improve mood. Still anxious!thoughts?
Many meds: You've tried many meds already, although there are some you haven't mentioned that often help anxiety: buspirone, beta-blockers, other mood stabilizers besides lithium, etc. But after a person has tried so many medications and still has symptoms, i'd suggest non-medication approaches: psychotherapy, mindfulness, relaxation training, exercise/yoga, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Dlpa supplement interaction i would like to ask a question and i intend to consult with my psychiatrist first but would like a second opinion. I am on lamictal, paxil, lithium and Adderall for ADHD and a bipolarii. My mood disorder isn't my biggest burden
Hello, : Hello, there seems to be variable input on this issue. Phenylalanine is an essential Amino Acid which is converted into tyrosine. Tyrosine is then used to produce Dopamine and norepinephrine. Of course, both of these neurotransmitters are impacted by a number of psychotropic medications. Dpla is contraindicated with monoamine oxidase inhibitors and reportedly should not be used with atypical antipsychotics. The majority of sites recommended that d.L. Phenylalanine not be used concurrently with standard antidepressant medications. Several sites recommended that dlpa not be used with Paxil or with stimulants. Use of dlpa can be associated with insomnia, headaches and increased blood pressure due to overstimulation of the central nervous system. I could not find any literature that addressed using dlpa with lithium. It should be noted that the fda does not regulate supplements and that dosages of the active ingredients are often not standardized. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
