getting off paxil

I been on paxil 5 mg for like 2 weeks well really a week and the 2 week I Started taking it every other day for 3 days then I stop was that the right thing to do ## Hello, Chris! How are you? 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...

Anyone take Paxil and gained weight?
3 Replies RSS
Started Paxil about 2 months ago and I have quickly gained 20 pounds. I can't stop eating, constantly crave sweets (as I'm eating a package of s'mores Pop Tarts). Paxil is helping me so much though, I can't decide if I should be happy (but unhappy with my body), calm, and chubby (possibly bordering on fat soon) ... or listless, socially anxious, and skinny.... just seeing if anyone else has a similar experience ## Hello, Vincent! How are you? Paxil is classified by the FDA as an SSRI and most of them are very well known to cause weight gain in people that take them. My ex-husband had the same problem, it was the only one that consistently worked for him, but it caused a lot of weight gain. Other side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth....

paxil, epleptin and tydamine for depression
1 Reply RSS
paxil 40, epleptin 100 mg and tydamine 25 mg for depression. Using paxil for 4 months now. The other 2 for 2 months. It looks as if it is not working properly. was better before the last 2 medicines was added. My daughter has like a social phobia. it is as if her condition is worse now. Can you suggest something else. She is 19 years old. Went to University at the beginning of 2013 but to study BSc Mathematical Science but couldn't finish because of the depression. ## My sister was on Tydamine and now suddenly it is not available anywhere in South Africa. How irresponsible the manufacturers are to do this to people. Do they not know how dangerous it is to just stop with no supply. What the hell do we do now!

paxil and vissual disturbance
1 Reply RSS
Hi I recently started paxil again after 2 years due to having very severe anxiety attacks. I have now been on paxil for 4 weeks and am starting to have very bad vissual snow. My vission is very hazy specially in the dark looks almost like camera noise. Now I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this whilst starting up paxil will it fade with time or is it here to stay ? I've been on.paxil twice in.the past and have never had this side effect ## Hello, Rommy! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. Yes, Paxil can cause vision issues, as listed among the side effects provided by the FDA. Even if you've never experienced them before, our bodies do change with time, so it's always possible to experience new side effects to a medication...

paquil
3 Replies RSS
white oblong pill ## I have se vere arthritis and osteo arthritis; what is paquil ## Hi sandra stewart, I can't find any information on a medication by the name "Paquil" - Are you referring to "Paxil" perhaps? If so, Paxil (Paroxetine) is actually an antidepressant in a group of drugs called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Although it is not usually prescribed for arthritis some studies have shown that this medication may be able to help with arthritis pain- very likely due to the fact that it decreases anxiety which may help with pain sensations. However, I have also read that Paxil can even cause Arthritis or joint pains so it seems as if the studies aren't that thorough at this point and time. Note: All thoughts and opinions expressed are based on my ...

Anxiety Medicine - Sleep Medicines, what can I do?
Post a Reply
Hi, I am long time anxiety patient - i've been on paxil, buspar, lexapro, zanaflex, remrom, flexiril, tricyciclants, trazodone - you name it. Also, with this I have had bad insomnia. I will not sleep for nights at a time, and it is affecting my work as well as my social life. I have tried (for sleep) Lunesta 2-4mg, Ambien 20mg, Sonata 40mg, and Prosom 2mg. I also aso tried restriol. For anxiety I have been on Ativan, Valium, Klonopin, and Versed. At the time, none of the night medicines work, I will even combine them. My anxiety (which is so common in my family) keeps me up. The problem is, they tend to either prescribe one (sleep medicine) or the other (anxiety). I have insurance, and would be willing to see a doctor. MY GAD is so awful lately, it's maybe Er TIME. So, does anyo...

Quit Paxil now starting it up

Hi, I'm a 31 y/o male and in March of 2014 I began to think that I had cancer. Specifically a brain tumor. Well after a couple of trips to the ER I was recommended to a psych dr. My dr said that due to my father and sister having anxiety problems I probably have general anxiety disorder. I was prescribed 20mg of Paxil and 1mg of Ativan to help with first couple weeks while my body gets adjusted to the Paxil. The Paxil worked wonderful, in fact it worked so well I decided to get off the drug cold turkey while my wife and I tried to have a baby. My wife is going after being off it for 4/5 weeks I began to have terrible anxiety again. I began to project the worse possible scenarios. I did not want to harm myself or anyone else but I was afraid that it could turn into that. You read all...

New to Paxil

I just started taking Paxil two days ago. As of this moment I feel sick and depressed. I started taking Paxil after two weeks of Effexor made my symptoms much worse. I feel like I'm hanging onto my sanity by a thread. All these brief ups and and never ending downs are just too much to deal with on a daily basis. Please Paxil work your magic!! ## Hello, Ed! How are you? Unfortunately, many antidepressants can cause a temporary worsening of symptoms for a few weeks, before things change and your symptoms start to improve. I take one for PMS/perimenopausal irritability and overtime we adjust the dosage, I just tend to expect it for about 3 weeks, before I see an improvement. The FDA lists Paxil as being an SSRI antidepressant and its typical side effects are listed as possibly includin...

VIIBRYID 40 mg
Post a Reply
I have been on VIIBRYID for two months and no help. Was on paxil over ten years but was on 60 mg for two years before switching. Reason for switching was due to post postpartum depression after my third child. I want to go back on paxil because it works for me but I would like some feedback on stopping and starting. I was tapered on paxil while tapering on to VIIBRYID but would there be a problem if I took 60 mg of paxil and just stop the 40 mg of VIIBRYID?? I have a Dr appointment tomorrow but just want others opinions.

Increasing tiredness from low dose of Paxil
3 Replies RSS
I started out on a VERY low dose of Paxil 1.5mg for 7 days and today is day 9 and have been on 2.25mg for 2 days. I am finding I could sleep all day and can't function- anyone else experience this and will it slowly taper off???? ## Hello, MK! How are you feeling? Yes, that is listed by the FDA as a possible side effect of SSRI antidepressants. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight changes. It should taper off, but not until you are on one steady dose for awhile, so your body can get used to it. As long as you are gradually titrating up, you'll likely continue to experience this. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Unfortunately when I gradually got up to 10 mg I had bad side effects of a burning sensation through my whole body, sweats ...

anxiety and depression

I just got out of Dover Behavior health for a nervous meltdown I was prescribed Paxil & xanax what scares me is the other medications I'm on which are percocet 10mg no Tylenol & oxycontin 40mg. I went today to pain management and they had received my record's for Dover. I told my Dr my fears and she said that my fears were just my anxiety and I had no need for worrying. I just think that's a lot of medications. am I just over reacting or are my fears valid? I need somebody to tell me what they think. {edited for privacy} ## Hello, Susan! How are you doing? I'm very sorry about the hospitalization. However, your doctor is correct, as long as they aren't causing you any bad symptoms, then there is no reason to worry. Many people take far more medications in a d...

Missed a bunch of doses of paxil
1 Reply RSS
Hey all for a few different stupid reasons that were my own fault I missed several Paxil 10mg doses a couple of weeks ago and started feeling the effects last week. I since then have been taking my 10mg once a day at night like always and I do definitely feel better than at first but still very anxious especially when I first wake up. I have Xanax to take to help me get through this period until I fewl 100% again. Not really sure why I'm posting maybe just for some reassurance I'll be myself soon enough. This happened twice before a couple years ago. The thing is that just like last time I am thinking "well i missed it a while ago so now I'm panicking that im not feeling 100% yet so maybe it's not working anymore". I try to reassure myself that the only times in ...

How do I raise me paxil intake
Post a Reply
So I was taking 30mg and over the past few months since June I believe I went from 30mg to 2.5mg because I didn't being tired and basicly feeling like a zombie. But now I'm at 2.5mg its like I'm taking nothing my anxiety it sky high again and my OCD is going to drive me insane. My Dr made me go from 10- 20 then 20 to 30. So can I go from 2.5 to 10mg. I think 10 would help me a lot. Then in a month I go back to 20 if 10 don't help. So is this safe.

ex girlfriend on Redotex,Paxil and thyroid pills
Post a Reply
I used to date a girl who started taking Redotex after stopping for a while. 2 weeks after that she wanted to combine it with Paxil, which is an antidepressant. On top of that she was already taking pills for thyroid problems. She used to say that if she didn't take the thyroid pills she would feel very tired. She would burst in tears out of nothing due to a side effect of Paxil. I'm still worried about her and I suggested her to excercise, however she refused. She would also get anxiety attacks. My question is: what behavior should we expect from someone who has been doing this for years? How is she going to be affected in a long term usage? What other side effects should we expect from the combination of Redotex, Paxil and thyroid pills? Thanks for your help.

how long does it take paxil to work

I'm switching from zoloft to paxil. I was feeling very bad on zoloft. I'm still on zoloft as my psychiatrist is tapering me off of it by having me cut from 100 to 50 mg for 14 days and then that's it. I've been on the paxil for three days. How long will it take for the paxil to start overcoming the bad side effects and withdrawal of zoloft? ## Hello, Keithman! How are you? About 2 to 3 weeks and perhaps a month, before it reaches its full efficacy level in your body. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, weight changes and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Its probably too late but it has become more apparent that Paxil can be problematic for alot. Includimg myself. I have been on it for 2 months and I started on 20mg and after a week I was to u...

cloponin & paxil
Post a Reply
I take both of these meds on a regular basis and have for over 3 years. I am moving to Pensacola Florida, I am worried about finding a Dr. Who will write these meds for me. I also take 100 mg of trazadone at bed time . It works great after about an hour and a half of being very irritable, restless and shaky. My Dr does not seem too concerned about this side effect. My question is does anyone know of a good Dr in Pensacola that would write these scripts considering my medical history. And does anyone relate to the side effects of trazadone. Thanks for any response.

Antidepressant weight gain
1 Reply RSS
I was on Paxil and gained 60 lbs in 6 months. I took it as a migraine preventative and it worked wonders but I was always a normal weight and then suddenly I was FAT! After a few years, I could not stand it and switched to Cymbalta but I stayed fat. I do not know what to do. I changed my diet to no junk food at all and it does not seem to matter. I have tried to get off of it but when I taper off, I have terrible heart palpitations. Help! ## Hello, Mica! How are you? Most antidepressants do cause weight gain in most people that take them. You might want to try asking your doctor about trying Prozac/Fluoxetine. It is also an SSRI, just like the Paxil, but it isn't known to cause weight gain, as a matter of fact, in some people it may cause weight loss. Other side effects may include ...

What is the longest paxil cAn take to start working
3 Replies RSS
I have been on paxil over 6 weeks now up to 60 Mgs whAt is the longest this can take to start working or does it mean if its bit working by now it just won't work for me please respond ## Hello, Theresa! How are you doing? 6 weeks is the maximum time it takes to reach it's full efficacy level in the body, in many people it reaches that level in as little as 4 weeks. Learn more Paxil details here. But how long have you been at this dosage? You really need to be at one dosage for that period of time, in order to see if it's going to help you, because every time you raise the dosage you cause more side effects to occur, which can make it seem like it isn't working. ## Don't always listen to what the "supposed" tested length is told to you as this will be quite d...

Can insomnia cause Paxil withdrawal symptoms?
1 Reply RSS
i'e been on Paxil (20 mg)for about 2 years to calm menopausal hot flushes. It's worked like a charm, and given me wonderful sleeps. However, after an emotional trauma, I had one sleepless night, and suddenly, all the symptoms of Paxil withdrawal have appeared. I feel thirsty all the time and my head feels like I'm having mild electric shocks, together with dizziness and nausea. I tried to explain this to a pharmacist, here in Mexico, where I'm on holiday. She didn't know what I was talking about. Any feedback on his would be appreciated. ## Hello, Rachelle! How are you doing? Are you feeling any better? That is very odd. Insomnia can cause those types of issues, but they certainly shouldn't be ongoing. Will you be back in the states soon to consult your doctor ab...
