Are you on an antidepressant? If so, what drug and dosage? What side effects do you experience? Does it seem to be helping?

I'm on 5mg of Lexapro, about to jump up to 10. Initial changes to dosage gives me lower stomach problems and insomnia. It seems to be helping somewhat, but definitely not with my anxiety problems yet.

I was on desipramine for a while but it stopped working for me. I had 50mg at the highest, and it gave me constipation, extremely heavy sleeping (like 9-10 hours on a regular basis), weird dreams/waking up in the middle of the night covered in sweat. it was an interesting experience.

I take 100mg of Zoloft and 300 mg of Seroquel for depression and anxiety. Dont really have many side effects from the Seroquel, but the Zoloft seems to make me last a lot longer in the sex department.

I can't take anything like SSRI's or anything like that. It makes me feel wierd the little bit I have tried. Xanax helps sometimes for anxiety but I do not take it all that often.
