Hi there I am on escitalopram (Lexapro or Cipralex in some places) and have had problems with side effects. I am reducing the amount slowly to get off them as the side effects are problematic. Are there any SSRIs that are recommended particularly for PD people?
I got my DaT Scan results (left side, Putamen region, smaller than right: Parkinson syndrome). I have seen the neuro once and had the MRI already. My next appointment is in two weeks and I want to be prepared. I have had symptoms for about five years but dismissed them, though I knew the resting tremor was a sign of PD. The neuro offered me Azilect on my last visit but I am hesitant due to the demand that I change my anti-depressant regime (20 mg Celexa and 40 mg Paxil). Another doctor I consulted said not to do Azilect if you have a history of depression. The neuro, however, said I would have to drop the Paxil. My psychiatrist says I would not have to and agrees this might not be the right time to mess with things. My symptoms are tolerable, but I don't feel up to messing with the psychopharmacology.... Will Sinemet help with the anxiety/depression? The psychiatrist says Welbutrin is the anti depressant of choice for PD but when I tried it before it made me anxious. What might happen next? What's your experience with anti-depressants? How do you tell your kids?
