My neuro is starting me on Prozac. Anyone else on that? What do you think of it? Any advice or recommendations? Thanks.
I am new to this forum but not new to MS. I have had MS for 15 years and luckily have managed it well. 6 years ago I started Paxil for anxiety that was causing IBS symptoms. After gaining a lot of weight, I weaned myself off it this summer with the help of my doctor. I have been using both prozac and wellbutrin, lowest dosages possible but I am curious if anyone has any information on either of these with Rebif. Wellbutrin seems to make me more anxious which my doctor said… read more
Spasticity is a major issue with my legs..
Thinking of switching to another anti-depressant. Any suggestions? I might add that the emotional issues are my worst. I have seen 4 psychologists and 1 psychiatrist and am not happy with their input. I wish there was an MS facility where you could tackle off the problems of this disease in "one stop shop"

My number seems to increase. I'm curious to know what number range is common and how it affects your life. A normal person would think that it'd be overmedicating and dangerous to the body. But it's different for a person with MS and other issues like epileptic tendencies like myself. It's hard not to be concerned about too many meds. My list:
Baclofen (new for my foot pain when I sleep)
Plus multivitamin and probiotic
I started lexapro a year ago and started at 10mg ,I wasn't diagnosed with ms yet ,they thought it was just fibromyalgia ,I was only 16 so I was put on a low dose ,after I was officially diagnosed with MS I was feeling very down and was put on 20 mg , it hasn't been working in months and I have no motivation to do anything even though I'm on the maximum of leaxapro . Has anyone has a problem similar to this ? Is there any other better antidepressants out there (I tried Prozac but it… read more
Since Ive been diagnosed my sex drive has decreased. Has this happened to anyone else? If so, what did you do to fix that?
I am finding my depression is getting worse and thinking about going back on something. Is anyone taking them and NOT have weight gain? If you did gain weight do you exercise? If you didn't gain any, do you exercise? I have been on a bunch of them over the years and gained 30 pds on Effexor all in my belly and prior always had a flat stomach. I also went through horrible, almost suicidal withdrawal. Wellbutrin made me so foggy I didn't "feel" anything and went off… read more
