Re: Question about poop-out & tapering

That's how I knew paxil pooped out on me. I was taking the same dose everyday but was all of a sudden exeriencing wd symptoms (brain zaps, crazy anxiety, racing thoughts etc). When I tapered I got wd symptoms at different times. Sometimes the very next day, sometimes a few days or weeks later. Either way, the symptoms were the same so I always knew.

- 2002-2010: Paxil 20mg
- 2009 - 20-0 mg paxil in 5 mnths(with prozac)
- 2009 (Dec): reinstated after 4 mnths off (crash)
- 2009 Dec -2010 Nov: Paxil 20mg
- 2010 Nov: switched to Zoloft 50mg (Paxil poop)
- 2011 Mar: tapered Zoloft (5.5 mnths)
- March: 37.5mg for 2 weeks
- April: 25 mg for 2 weeks
- April: 12.5mg for 18 weeks

Re: Question about poop-out & tapering

It was both for me, had awful symptoms out of the blue ON the med, while tapering, and for months AFTER I quit too. Most of it has eased up a lot.
2 Timothy 1:7: "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."

2005-2010 Effexor XR 112.5mg-262.5mg for PPD
June-Dec 2010 Poop-out (crash)
3 month cross taper off Effexor onto 40mg Cipralex, switched to 20mg Celexa, switched to 20mg Paxil
Nothing helped except waiting 7 months to stabilize on Paxil then starting to taper:
Oct'11 to Nov '12 20mg-10mg
March'13 to Feb'14 9mg -4mg
Feb 7/14-4.0mg
April 1/14-3.6mg
