Paxil withdrawals
3 Replies RSS Share
Hi, I have been taking Paxil (20mg) for over a year now. The first time I noticed withdrawal symptoms was when I was unable to pick up my refill and missed 1 day of taking it. I woke up hardly able to walk because the room felt like it was spinning and I kept feeling like I was having brain seizures. About 2 hours or so after taking a pill I was feeling back to normal. Is this normal for this kind of a drug? I’m 22, still having occasional suicidal thoughts while on Paxil and am worried that I am now addicted to it. Is this drug safe? ## NO! I was on it 6 years . Paxil and Amitriptylin for sleep. I quit paxil cold turkey big mistake. tapered off over 5 months. Was still not easy. This is my first month off and my biggest complaint is the itching and dry skin areas. Did some prep w...

paxil 10 mg inconsistent inprimt
1 Reply RSS Share
Hi, I picked up my prescription of Paxil 10 mg today from CVS, it’s brand name and was in a sealed bottle from manufacturer. The pills are oval, yellow one side says Paxil and the other is 10 but with a spitter line in the middle. They have always looked like this. When I look at the Paxil side of the pill and flip it up like a notepad page all my old pills would show the 10 facing up but this last bottle the 10 is upside down. Is this normal? Shouldn’t their imprint all be consistent? Pharmacist said it’s fine but I want to confirm because I am super anxious about taking them and have to take it today. I look forward to your reply, thank you! ## Your pharmacist is correct it is fine, there's nothing that says they have to all face the same direction. It really dep...

Paxil and Trileptal
1 Reply RSS Share
Has anyone taken Trileptal (for anger) and Paxil (for anxiety) together? Did it help? My son has taken Trileptal which has helped the anger but the anxiety is no better. ## They can be taken together, if his doctor approves and is monitoring him regularly, but the FDA does warn that it may intensify some of the side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, headache, mood changes, and weight changes. Is he on any other medications? What conditions has he been diagnosed with?

Paxil removed from market?
17 Replies RSS Share
I heard Paxil has been removed from the market. True? Anyone know why? Also, are there any side effects or reaction concerns with taking Paxil (Paroxetine) along with Serzone (Nefazodone)? Both show side effects including 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 plea...

Paxil & Trazodone together?
4 Replies RSS Share
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...

chronic fatigue med

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...
