Best medication to treat minor OCD, social anxiety, general anxiety, and mild depression? related questions

  • 1Best medication to treat minor OCD, social anxiety, general anxiety, and mild depression?

    I've always been a little OCD. Whenever I closed all the doors of my house before going to bed, close the cabinet doors, occasionally if I have one side of my face that I have to meet and touch the other, ect ect. This is accompanied by social anxiety, which is what I'm really trying to address here. It has negatively affected my life in a way too. I am so surprised that he never even underground, because I've never been there before and do not know how to order food or make the sand. Do not go into social situations if I'm not 100% comfortable or familiar with them. It all started in my teens too. I also suffer from general anxiety. I stress over the little things and I worry about stupid. And I think all this is topped by a mild depression that has made terrible, insecure and distrustful. To the point where you almost do not speak in school to avoid comments mean by classmates or any other form of mockery. (My school is a pretty average, if you go to my school they experience at least some form of bullying and this has not helped my depression and social anxiety at all) My school is at least partially responsible, in my opinion, for rapidly diminishing my confidence and social life I lived in the time he started hitting puberty. Anyway is not what is wrong with me the question is what is the best medicine? I tried Paxil, but as soon as I doubled the dose, as directed by the doctor, I was severely depressed. Depression as I have never felt before. So things went cold turkey and the worst of withdrawal symptoms was depression. I'm pretty sure my chemical dependency drug is to blame, but when she came out of the depression was a strange mixture of boredom, frustration and sadness deep rooted. Anyway I'm done with that and I would like some advice from people who are similar to me and take any medication SSRIs or anxiety. Or if your doctor, nurse, or even remotely educated in medicine answers are highly appreciated. I really need the help of his uncle. I'm an emotional wreck, chemically unbalanced right now.

  • 3What's the best medication for social anxiety/ depression?

    I am on 150mg of Wellbutrin daily and, to put it simple, feel like it had made me dumb... I think social anxiety is my biggest problem but I was technically diagnosed with clinical depression several years ago. I don't want to be on medication at all but for now... I just need an alternative to Wellbutrin because I am done feeling like an idiot. I'm more easily confused and lose track of what I was thinking WAY more than I used to. =(

    Recently, the man I 'm seeing has been diagnosed with social anxiety and depression . Now I have my long history of mental problems , but for some reason I'm having difficulty helping him.
