Dosing is different for all of the SSRIs. 40mg is considered the max for Lexapro, but I'm pretty sure that the max for Prozac is double that. As for who is taking what, it is all dependent on individual needs. In my case, Zoloft and Paxil are the only sSRIs I have NOT taken at some point!

From my (admittedly primitive) understanding of who gets what SSRI, Lexapro is used for people whose primary complaint is depression, and Zoloft is used when anxiety is the bigger problem. In fact, because my panic attacks have been getting worse lately, when I see my shrink Tuesday I'm going to ask if Lexapro is still the right choice for me.

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!
