Good evening!! Thanks for this forum. I am in the process of switching from lexapro to paxil. My psych dr told me to take the lexapro for 14 days while starting the paxil. I am on day 7 of both. I also started taking buspar to help with the transition. Has anyone done this before? Just wondering. I am having a lot of anxiety and OCD thoughts. Just wanna hear that someone else has done this and been successful-

I’ve been on lexapro and Paxil with no benefits. I was recently diagnosed with bipolar 1 and put on a mood stabilizer, it’s done wonders for me! I also take Buspar 60 mg for anxiety and it seems to be helping. Hopefully you have good success with the meds as they effect everyone differently. :hug:

I feel so much better!! I take paxil for OCD thoughts and buspar for anxiety. I just started taking remeron at night-low dose-to sleep-I was getting horrible insomnia from buspar. I have never slept so well!! Hugs to you too!!
