Im just taking paxil and i go back and forth between that and lexapro but it doesnt change the fact that it always evevntually wears off which is the whole problem and im pretty sure there is no such thing as a med that actually works permanently and the genetic test just says that i have a genetic malfunction with my seratonin receptor , its too short and so thats why alot of ssris dont work for me and it tells me what meds i should stay away from too which is good to know

i started taking paxil when i was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder and i was 19 yrs old at the time and it always eventually wears off and i dont realize it until im in full blown panic mode and then it takes me forever to do anything about it but it gets old!
