I wonder, general opinion, and experiences, what SSRI is the least troublesome and the better for derealization and depersonalization.

I am now off Paxil (well, 5 mg) and it's horrible. I didn't like it on it neither. I am now thinking of trycyclics because I tried all AD = SSRI's and felt very confused.

I just wonder if someone take antidep (new ones) and what they think of SSRI's. Or other kind of meds.

I'm on Lexapro and although I haven't been having panic attacks, I have been dealing with bouts of DP/DR so either it's causing it or it's not helping.

I'm on a super low dose however ( 5 mg's) and have only been on it 4 weeks so it's possible it hasn't fully kicked in yet.

I've tried Paroxetine (Seroxat/Paxil) with some success over a period of 16 years, but it didn't prevent social phoba and agoraphobia developing because of the dp.

Recently tried Sertraline (Zoloft/Lustral) for six weeks, but it seemed to make the dp worse. Now off Sertraline and considering returning to Paroxetine.
