chronic fatigue med
4 Replies RSS
I have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. Have suffered with both for years. There are times when I don't have enough energy to get out of bed for days. Plus, sleep for 24 to 36 hrs straight. Only to go to bathroom then back to sleep. I have no quality of life. Used to travel for my career and never stopped. This doing nothing is not me. My family and friends don't understand why I am not up and about as I used to be. My FIBRO pain is mostly under control, but nothing I have tried has controlled my chronic fatigue. Biochemic cell salts is working for the FIBRO. Any suggestions? Willing to try anything. Am now looking at natural meds. Several are available but don't know what is best. Very confused. Almost missed my mothers funeral. Sad situation. People need me and I am letti...

When should Paxil start to take effect?
1 Reply RSS
This is my 24th day of taking Paxil. For the first 5 days I was on 5mg, and then I have been taking 10 mg for anxiety, as that is how it's prescribed. My anxiety got worse since I started to take this med. It has now been 3 weeks.. I am wondering when it is going to start working? ## Hello, Zoya! How are you? Has there been any change, yet? It can take about 4 to 5 weeks for it to reach its full level of efficacy in your body, at one consistent dose, to see how well it will work for you. How long have you been taking the current dosage? The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, and weight changes.

Paxil differences
1 Reply RSS
Are paxil and paxil hydrochloride the same thing? I've seen hydrochloride on a pill bottle, but I have never seen it on my prescription bottle before. ## Yes, they are the same, Paxil Hydrochloride is just the longer name for it, the Hydrochloride designates the precise chemical salt it was derived from during manufacturing. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight changes. Some pharmacies list it on the labels, some don't. Is there anything else I can help with?

Paxil & Trazodone together?
3 Replies RSS
I have been on Paxil for anxiety for about 6 months, I was having trouble sleeping so my Dr added Trazodone 50mg 1 an hour before bedtime. Just wondering if anyone has been on the two together, and is it safe, since Traodone is also an antidepressant, I have to say I actually feel even better now, than when I was just taking the Paxil. I have been taking the Trazodone for about a month now. ## Hi Sandie, Hopefully your doctor was aware of this before adding the Trazodone, but according to various drug interaction checkers, combining these two medications may increase your risk of developing a rare but serious condition called serotonin syndrome. Symptoms associated with serotonin syndrome that you may want to watch out for, can include the following: Confusion, hallucination, blurred vi...

Paxil removed from market?
16 Replies RSS
I heard Paxil has been removed from the market. True? Anyone know why? Also, is there any side effects or reaction concerns with taking Paxil (Paroxetine) along with Serzone (Nefazodone)?, as both show side effects includin mood swings and hostility. ## Why was Paxil removed from the market? ## I had just started on it, thought it was working OK, went in for my first eval., and was switched to Lexapro. The nurse said Paxil was no longer being prescribed and was being pulled off the market. No one seemed to know why. H ## I was perscribed paxil by my doctor to help with post partem depression and daily stress about 4 months ago. I honestly think that I should be on something different but I don't really know much about the drug game. If anyone has any personal experiences to share pl...

Paxil is the worst medicine
1 Reply RSS
I've been on Paxil for 1 year and am tapering off from 10 mg. I'm on week 2 and have experienced racing heart, tremors, zapping in hands, nausea. Omg! I would never recommend this drug. I'll just deal with panic attacks and my .25 Xanax. ## How much have you lowered your dose, so far? Some withdrawal effects are normal any time you lower the dosage or stop taking a medication, according to the NIH. They can occur due to stopping anything from a blood pressure medication, to a daily dose of Aspirin. Stopping your Xanax would actually be much worse, since it can be habit forming and suddenly stopping it creates the risk of seizures, as reported by the FDA. Why are you stopping the Paxil?

Weaning/tapering off paxil
1 Reply RSS
I've been on 20mg Paxil/aropax (one per day) for 20 months now after suffering from bad anxiety and panic attacks. I've recently decided to come off it as I'm feeling really well. I went as saw my doctor who told me to lower my dosage to 10mg per day for a month then reassess after that. It's been 5 days and the withdrawals are horrible. I'm getting bad brains caps, dizziness, vertigo, nausea, insomnia. Do you think im lowering the dosage too quickly? And how long do the withdrawals usually last? Thanks. ## Hello, Joey! How are you? Yes, that is a rather big drop in the dosage, in most cases in the U.S., it would done more gradually, such as dropping to 15mgs for awhile, then to 10mgs and so on. It may take 4 to 6 weeks for the withdrawals to fully go away and, as li...

forgot paxil can i sub prozac
1 Reply RSS
Left my paxil at home and I'm on trip. Can I take my wives prozac for a few days or just skip my antidepressant altogether? ## Hello, Chrissy! How are you? It would be best to check with your doctor, because the doses differ from one to the other, even though they are in the same class of medications. If you skip it for the duration of your trip, you may experience withdrawal effects, that may include nausea, diarrhea, rebound depression and anxiety. What dosages do you each take?

is paxil a narcotic drug
1 Reply RSS
Have been on Paxil 10mg for 5yrs and new (past year) Dr told me that even though I just had bloodwork, they cannot refill until I see Dr again. I have seen this Dr 5 times in past year for other things. I have 5 doses left but Dr can't see me for almost 30 days. I know I am not supposed to stop taking Paxil suddenly. Dr says it is a controlled substance, so I looked it up and that is a flat out lie. I am on Medi-cal past year due to acworkers comp injury, but surgeries are finished and I am only on my regular thyroid, high blood pressure meds and Paxil. Can Dr lie about Paxil and withold it, for 30 days knowing that it is a drug u shouldn't abruptly stop? I am pretty miffed as I suffer depression and social anxiety ## The doctor can set his/her own policy on how often you need t...

I'm on seraquel now 75 Mgs just started 5 days ago I have severe anxiety depression PTSD OCD also on paxil now 30 Mgs for 4 weeks its not helping will the seraquel help with my anxiety and symptoms of extreme fear ## Hi, Theresa! How are you things going? Seroquel is sometimes given to augment another medication that isn't quite doing its job to treat anxiety. Learn more Seroquel details here. However, the only way to know if it will work for you is to try it for a month or so and see for yourself. What works for one person doesn't always work for another. Are you also undergoing therapy? ## Seraquel also takes at least a month? Doc says therapy wouldn't help me now til I stabilize. Do you take seraquel or paxil ## YES it will! It worked for me! I was freaking out at wor...

anyone else losing weight on paxil?
3 Replies RSS
I have started using paxil for about 3 weeks now. It seems to be working for me. I hear so many people complaing about weight gain and I was afraid this was going to happen to me. I just lost 51 lbs on weight watchers and didn't want to gain any weight back. I watch my calorie intake every day and keep a journal. But I find I am taking in less calories lately because since taking paxil I do not feel hungry like I used to.. I have lost 3 lbs in the past 3 weeks. ## Excessive eating and hunger can be caused by mental health disorders and depression. And not everyone experiences such side effects from this class of medications. Very glad to hear that it is working well for you. Paxil contains the active ingredient Paroxetine, it is an SSRI antidepressant. You can learn more about it he...

Can you just change from one to another or do you have to cross taper the med is paxil going to luvox ## Hello, Theresa! How are you? If you've been taking it for a long time, then a cross taper/titration is usually best and what most doctors will have you do to avoid any severe withdrawal and rebound effects. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## Took it two months before that I took lexPro two months nothing worked what do u think ## can we switch from clorocef to klavox?

Switching from Paxil to Viibryd
2 Replies RSS
I am switching from Paxil to Viibryd due to weight gain from Paxil. I'm slowly decreasing Paxil while increasing viibryd, (my choice because I'm terrified of withdraw symptoms). I have been on Paxil for 10 years, coming off of it recently and going on Zoloft during pregnancy. I lost a ton of weight when I was on Zoloft, and the second I started Paxil again, I started gaining quickly. I wanted to go back on Paxil because Zoloft just wasn't controlling my anxiety well. So, here I am, on the 20 mg of Viibyrd plus a 5 mg of Paxil a day. Starting 40 mg of viibryd tomorrow and stopping Paxil. I am noticing that if I don't take the viibryd right at 24 hours since the last dose, I am so anxious! It's almost immediate. Does this drug have no half life? Being an anxious, ocd p...

Actually, after just a week, tapering usually isn't necessary. How are feeling? Did you experience any adverse effects? The FDA classifies this medication as an SSRI antidepressant and lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight gain. ## Verwon hey hi are you and thanks for asking I am okay I just wanted to know if I did the right thing all I have experience for right now is Alot of sweating at night and my head fill Heavy at times well not such heavy but like a lil headache are something how long will it take for it to completely out m...
