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

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...
