Re: Paxil Poop Out?

Well, for what it's worth, I went on Paxil at around the same age as you, early 20's. I had a few start-up side effects, but nothing too worrisome. I felt it kick in within a month or so, and thought...

Re: Can you detox paxil?

Anything I ever did that had a "detox" effect made me feel worse. Just support your body by living clean and eating clean along with exercise and let your body do it's thing with time.

Hi there

Hey 442,

Re: non stop raging anxiety how do YOU cope?

Re: how do you know if it's just your original symptoms returning?

I don't think it's the real you at all. As long as you are on medication, and a medication that is altering your brain, it's just adding to your problem. This is not to say you won't have anxiety...

I don't know if this will be...

After SSRI/AD/benzo use, you will still likely be dealing with the problems that brought you to the drugs in the first place. What exactly are you experiencing today...what are your symptoms?

Re: Embarassing things you did while being manic/under the influence?

Luckily Paxil never made me manic. I had some highs and lows but nothing too extreme. I will say though that I had zero filter while on Paxil and often said some really stupid things. I slap my...

When I was on Paxil, my IBS was barely an issue. Coming off it, and BCP, all hell broke loose. Do a search on birth control and gut health, it could have been something that years of medication...

What dose of Zoloft were you on? I am leaning towards Scotty's suggestion of tapering the Zoloft slowly...if your goal is to be med-free. Is there any way you can tell your GP that...
