David interviews Bob Fiddaman, a survivor of a Paxil (ed Seroxat in the UK, where he lives) prescription. Well I was thinking of going on this drug after watching the commercial on TV and hearing some good things about it on the official Paxil website but after going to a unofficial website with regular people who took the drug for reasons i'm afraid to go on this people are saying it caused their anixety, depressions, etc. The following is a diary made by one of our forum members after she stopped taking Paxil back in 2005. I started to feel like I was passing out, but in really slow motion. They took blood, checked my thyroid, white count, potassium ect. Thursday (10/27) I woke up dry heaving and feeling really shaky. I took the kids to school and then stopped over to a friend’s house to have coffee. I felt like I was sitting on a fire but when I took my temp it was normal. The same symptoms followed again throughout the day. I was sweating and felt like my face, hands, and upper body was on fire. About I started to have my whole body clench up uncontrollably. Thursday (11/3) I woke up having that same yucky feeling. Like you think something bad is going to happen, but you have no idea what? He said that he still thinks all of my symptoms are due to the withdrawal off the Paxil.
Every weekday, a CNNHealth expert doctor answers a viewer question. Charles Raison, an associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Emory University, and an expert in the mind-body connection for health. Before I tried to wean myself off of Paxil, I had worked for 20 years in a cal field and become fairly successful. I was orinally prescribed Paxil to treat mild situational anxiety. I did not realize the ways that Paxil changed my behavior and personality until I tried to stop taking it.
This is one person's experience with withdrawal symptoms and may not be indicative of what you personally will experience, especially if you work closely with your doctor and taper slowly. Saturday (10/22) Doing fine Sunday (10/23) Still doing pretty good Monday (10/24) Feeling like maybe I could be catching a cold. I struggled all day to do my bookwork and then go coach my 4th grade basketball team. Everything sounded like it was going through a tunnel at hh speed. I drove the kids to school, having dry heaves on the way, and then I came home and started to cry. I was crying so hard I was having trouble catching my breath. I thought that if I could keep it out of my mind it would be better. Although my husband said my face and neck were brht red. At this point I was taking the Lorazepam about every 6 hours. I took my temperature and sure enough it was normal. My legs and whole body felt like it kept locking up. I tried to go to work just to get my mind on something else, but it was not easy. He also said to keep taking the 100 mg of the Zoloft. I had the same clenching of my muscles, shakes, and the wonderful dry heaving (nausea). I don’t really want to take that either but it does help. Sure enough, within the hour the dry heaving started. I tried to keep really busy to keep my mind off of it. Every time I moved fast, drove, anything that required a lot of motion I would start to gag and then dry heave. I did not take any Lorazepam today; fure I could suffer through. It seems to be when I am driving or I get up fast, must be the motion. After talking to my doctor, I am going to give my system some time to get back to normal from the Paxil.
I was on Paxil CR (Controlled-Release) 12.5 mg for nearly a full year before my doctor increased the dosage to 25 mg thinking that it would be effective. First of all, I have a mild level of social anxiety.
I must have read every paxil comment on the web - users for a few years being told that the side effects go away after a few months... and have to point at the sock drawer 'cause I can't find the word. WHERE CAN I BUY CIALIS ONLINE YAHOO
