Re: Test to check vitamin and mineral deficiencies
You can get a blood test done to test for deficiencies. I did that and found out I was vitamin D deficient, so I now take a vitamin D supplement.
Summer 1999 – stress overload, declining health
December 1999 – Doctor diagnoses depression & anxiety, 20mg paxil.
January 2000 to May 2009 – Paxil dosage rises to 40mg. Numerous failed attempts to quit.
June to July 2009 – too fast taper, wind up in ER. Read paxilprogress and decide to stabilize at 30mg.
Sept '09 through summer '11 slowly tapered to 9mg.
Aug '11 Updosed to 14mg
Continue taper at 5% each month
As of June 2012 10mg.
