6) Prozac-least (most energizing) how baout zoloft, luvox, lexapro, etc? The only SSRI I've been on is Paxil CR 25mg and I don't find it sedating at all.
Celexa (Citalopram hydrobromide) was approved by the FDA in July 17, 1998.
Celexa is manufactured by Forest Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
I have some friends who take it, and they've said that it's sedating at first, but in some cases it wears off and in others it's fine if taken at bedtime.
Maybe it's because of the continuous release formula, maybe the regular Paxil is more sedating.
Lexapro (Escitalopram oxalate) is the newest and most selective of the SSRIs approved by the FDA in August 14, 2002. The brain communicates with itself through the use of special chemicals called neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and norepinephrine.
Lexapro is manufactured by Forest Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Neurotransmitters carry signals from one nerve cell to another.
The strategy behind rational drug development is to design a new drug that is capable of affecting a specific neural site of action (e.g., uptake pumps, receptors) while avoiding effects on other site of actions.
The goal in such development is to produce agents that are more efficacious, safer and better tolerated than older medications.

Anyone have any input about which SSRIs are most or least sedating?
