What medication would you recommend?

Postby ImNewToThis » Wed Sep 26, 2018 9:31 am

I saw the Doctor today and they suggested either increasing my 40mg Fluoxetine (Prozac) to 60mg (though they warned that the effects would be minimal, and I'd have to switch things up by taking 40mg one day and 60mg other days - but my memory is poor), or moving off of it and trying either Sertraline (Zoloft) or Escitalopram (Lexapro). I’ve got a phone call with them on Monday to decide which route I want to take after reading up on things over the weekend - any advice from anyone?

I've been on 40mg Prozac for 5 years, so my instinct is to give it another try, but another part of me is concerned about how poor my memory is, and flogging a dead horse. So, it'd be good to hear other peoples thoughts on Zoloft and Lexapro.

We're all in the established game but we don't have to be played. We can play and become masters.
