PW, crospovidone is used as a binding agent and disintegrant in many oral medication tablets. Research indicates that crospovidone is not absorbed by the human digestive system, and therefore simply passes through the body.
There is a very good chance that you have taken crospovidone on many occasions, and have not been aware of it.
You did not indicate in your post what anti-depressants you have tried in the past, and for how long. Unfortunately, in the beginning stages of treatment, anti-depressant can make a bad situation worse for a period of time, due to side effects of the medication. I am taking Celexa, PW, and have been on it for some six months now. I am one of those individuals that had some pretty severe side effects from the Celexa, when I first started, but I stuck it out, and most of them diminished greatly some 2-3 weeks into treatment.
When you start your Celexa, I suggest you start off at a low dose, either 5 or 10 mg, but not exceeding 10 mg. You can go up 5-10 mg every 7-10 days till you reach a therapeutic dose. The low therapeutic dose for Celexa is 20 mg, with a maximum dose of 40 mg.
I hope that this information helps you.
Again, welcome to Anxiety Zone, PW. If you have any question, feel free to ask. The very best to you!... Chuck
