I just posted in the OCD thread, but i think my question is probably best answered in the SSRI's thread.
I'm taking Remeron and Zoloft for my GAD and OCD. The Zoloft has worked really well for the OCD- i'm about 70% better now thank goodness! The only problem is that my break-thru GAD is still quite bad. My pdoc has suggested that i might change the Zoloft to Paxil as this may work for the GAD better.
I'm really keen to try to fix the GAD and someone pointed out in the OCD forum that Paxil is really good for anxiety. I'm worried though, that if i find that Paxil isn't as good as Zoloft for me (i know this is unlikely but bear with me) and want to go back to zolfot, that the zoloft may not work as well as is it now- i've heard it said elsewhere on this forum that SSRI's often don't work as well the 2nd time you take them.
Has anyone found this? Got less of an effect after taking a break from an SSRI and then coming back to it? I'm just really scared about loosing what gain i've made, but i really want the paxil if it'll help.
