Ive suffered with panic on and off for 20 years...i faint during massive attacks(wake up shaking, sweating, vomiting and diarhea). I cant handle meds well but in the past have been able to take 10 mg prozac and .5mg klonopin with success...now i can only take 5mg prozac and klonopin only as prn since it wipes me out even at .25mg......last year i was off the 5mg prozac for the first time in years and felt better....then in april of this year relapsed with anxiety and also depression with ocd thinking......in the midst of this there was a corp downsizing and i lost my job(they didnt know about my disorder...im 52 and been working for 30 yrs).......ive been on 5mg prozac now for 9 weeks and its not really helping....only a little..ie for sleep....i have bad ibs and find that these ssris worsen it.......ive tried lexapro in the past ..ie 5mg....had success but the ibs got so bad, had to quit...this was 7 yrs ago...thinking about switching again to lexapro.....i was only on it for 7 weeks when i took it....whats the equivalence of 5mg prozac to XYZ lexapro?
