  1. I was prescribed 20mg of this medication when I was about 17. I was continually taking it for about 13 years without ever questioning my doctor about long term effects out of me being young and naive. I just recently tapered down over a year long period and my life is a shell of what it was. The initial withdrawal symptoms(mostly physical) are gone but the remaining emotional numbness and indifference to anything and anyone is just soul crushing. I have lost interest in most everything and my passions have been snuffed out. Everyday I try to find ways to cope but it’s hard to stay hopeful. I’ve read people having long term withdrawal effects for years. It just scares me knowing how long I was in these meds and how that can effect the longevity of symptoms. I hope for better days mentally but it’s hard staying positive when the future is so unclear. Good luck to anyone else going through this or planning on tapering yourself. Please be very cautious with this medication. I feel it should only be prescribed in a worst case scenario.

  2. My husband started Paxil (20 mg) four days ago for a life-long anxiety issue (which runs in his family). The first day he was good but since then he has had the feeling of a lump in his throat, he's always cold to the touch and feels cold (used to always feel hot), has struggled with nausea/lack of an appetite, has experienced dizziness, and has become unusually quiet and agitated. Is this normal?

  3. I’ve been on this since I was 18, I will be 38 soon, but I’ve been on it so long I’m afraid of having bad withdrawals! Im pretty sure I have manic episodes as a side effect, Kaiser just gives me 300 pills at a time. Im not sure of the medicine is even working anymore?

  4. I took this medication for close to 20 years, since the early 90s. Never had any negative side effects that I was aware of, other than… a very strange out of body experience, like I was detaching from my body. It made me feel very strange, but it would go away after 10 minutes or so. I had this sensation every few days.

    I will say it really is a miracle drug for anxiety, all forms of it.

    It also helped my sex life as I got older and was in highschool and life after highschool.

    Tbh I can't really list any real negatives.

    I tried seeing how I felt coming off the drug several times, and yeah I did have side effects, but they weren't that bad, usually just a return of my anxiety symptoms.

    Fast forward a few decades and I'm not on any medication. I was actually misdiagnosed, because what I really had was undiagnosed severe obstructive sleep apnoea. To make things even more complicated, I also developed very bad GERD, but it may have been silent GERD for many many years. GERD can also be a differential diagnosis for obstructive sleep apnoea.

    Anyway, since being put on cpap, Having my septum and turbinates adjusted, Having my lingual tonsils out, and having surgery on my esophagus and diaphragm to resolve my chronic gerd, I am medication free.

    Talk about being put through the wars, misdiagnosed etc etc and just living with being on 40mg of paroxetine for decades….sheesh

  5. I only care about being like a decade or two younger then i am in normal population- and for some reason it was chosen to intervene in cartilage etc. loss that I presently suffer in midlife.

    Glibbly it must be cheap? THey took a patent, I am depressed but dare not try meds from family experiences as Latuda from getgo is beyond my budget.

    In fact stress has rotted my right largest joints because I cope 'so well' (externtally)

    The viscous cycle of osteoarthritis being defeated by psych meds is news to me today.
    Physical therapy is a joke- and I have other stress likely contributing or entirely causing in under a year problems!

    I value my mental health and clinicians keep finding me NOT depressed and a ok. Again I wear it well.

    Rheumatology I have to get. Not my idea either! Did I write like a mental patient? I have 1 minute left on library computer lol.

    Paxil for arthritis needs patient history of decades to confirm retro- duh.

  6. Ive been tapering off Paxil the past 6 months from 20 mgs and am now down to 5 and am in utter hell. Has anybody else done a slow wean like this and still feel awful?😩

  7. Klonopin helps me enormously in coming down from paxil levels. It's supposed to be the most potent SSRI too I have heard.

  8. I took this medicine after my ob/gyn diagnosed me as bipolar after I told him that I was having mood swings and hot flashes at 38. This medication ruined my life. I became an alcoholic, I lost hope, I can cry at the drop of a hat. I'm 41 now and I am in financial ruin, last year I finally saw a counselor and I was told that I wasn't bipolar instead I have an adjustment disorder and need talk therapy to work out my issues but I'm so irresponsible and reckless now that I don't believe that I will ever recover. Plus I still drink.
