Zoloft and Paxil are known for sexual side
effect. I am now on Lexapro and find it has few side effects
(I'm still having weight gain, but not sure if it's meds, age, perimenopause, stress or a combo). I find Xanax to be a lifesaver, if not abused, I don't see it worse than relying on an SSRI (or insulin, if you're diabetic). It doesn't get me high and I keep the dose the same. I just started Inderal for palpitations but am fearful I will gain more weight.
