Citalopram (Celexa) / Lexapro (Escitalopram)

The treatment of mental disorders is a personal trial and error process. Just because one person has severe headaches when they use Zoloft doesn't necessarily mean that if you take Zoloft YOU will have headaches too. Conversely, the fact that Paxil didn't work at all for one member does not mean that Paxil cannot be your success story. Your wonder drug or combination of, will be discovered totally independent of what may or may not work for another individual. If one drug was the answer for everyone, then there would be only one drug on the market. We all react differently to different medications and varying dosages. It may satisfy your curiousity to learn about other people's experiences, BUT this should never be the deciding factor as to what will work best for you. Sorry, it just doesn't work that way.*Depression Forums does not endorse, approve, recommend, or certify any information, specific treatment, medication, service, or professional presented or mentioned on this website.Last Updated: April 09 2005,09:16
