lei Posted March 11, 2008 Share Posted March 11, 2008 Hi, I feel like I need an SSRI again for my OCD but am dreading the side effects. I know it ultimately comes down to whether they're worth the benefit or not, but in making that decision (which I know my docs will support) I'd like to know: Has anyone had bad side effects with two SSRIs but not as bad with a third? Lexapro and Celexa both worked beautifully for my head, but badly for my body. Any guesses on my odds if I tried a third? And if so, which one? Side effects included but were not limited to anorgasma (but testosterone creme handled most of that, so I'd be willing to take that on again) and digestive havoc. On Lexapro I had no appetite, and bad nausea and diarrhea. On Celexa I had some nausea and the belly of my 96 pound body ballooned like I was pregnant. Promethazine helped with the nausea but the rest sucked. Anyway I'm weighing it all out and hoping for some hope. What sucks least for you? Thanks.
