good non ssri for anxiety?


Recommended Posts

tried effexor, and i'm slowly coming off it.  tried ssri's and they don't get along with my body.  so, in y'alls opinions, what's a good med for anxiety, maybe a little depression?  i've got clonazepam, but i need something else i think.  if i start getting bad after i get off effexor, i may need something else.  so i want your input.  my doc keeps suggesting wellbutrin but i already have an excellerated heartbeat so yeah.

thanks =D

Have you tried Remeron yet?  It helped me for a couple of years, but pooped out.  You look slim in your photo, so if you don't mind the muchies, maybe talk to your doc about it.  Aside from weight gain, I had zero side effects.  I don't believe it has any heart issues, but your doc can verify that.

I would think the norepinephrine is what contributes to heart issues, but I'm no doctor. Remeron can be good. As I understand it, it works more on epinephrine at the higher doses so my wild guess advice would be to try it at 15-30 mgs for a while. Also helped me for a couple years and pooped out.

actually, i am not thin.  160lbs at 5'4''.  i have truncal obesity, so it gathers itself there.

i will have to ask my doctor, i suppose.  though my mother told me she thought i had an appointment in april, much farther than i thought.  i am going to call tomorrow to see when exactly it is.  i am weaning off effexor and it's hell.  i cannot stand it.
