What anti depressants dont suppress dreams?

This answer was rated:

What anti depressants don't suppress dreams?

DoctorZ :

Hello I believe I can help you with your concern

DoctorZ :

I am sorry that you experienced a suppression of dreams with your antidepressant. Usually most people experience vivid or abnormal dreams with their antidepressant use, never a suppression of dreams though

DoctorZ :

May I ask, is the Paroxetene the only antidepressant you have tried so far?

DoctorZ :

*Paroxetine

Customer:

I was on 60 mg/dsy of Psroxetene and dropped to 20mg every secind day and drems were better but dosage left me very depresed. Now I'm on Cipralex, 10mg daily since yesterday.

DoctorZ :

Cipralex is a very good and effective antidepressant and I was going to advise that medication to you because there are no incidence reports that it effects dreams at all.

Customer:

That is good to know. Thank you very much.

DoctorZ :

Sertraline as well has no incidence reports involving dreams too
