    Paroxetine for Mood swings; Fatigue; Anxiety disorders

    I’m not 20 yet and have a lot of bad experiences for my age with AD. After a major change, panic attacks, extreme fatigue and eating disorders increased. The doctor prescribed me 50mg Tresleen (but helped absolutely nothing, was so desperate that I have even increased to 100mg, which in turn has brought nothing). I felt the sitting down physically speaking I had a headache and body aches (psychically, nothing had changed). I then went directly to a psychologist who recommended paroxetine to me (since my mother had responded very well to it and he said that something similar happens in the brain and therefore I will respond well). Unfortunately, I took the paroxetine for a long time, tripled the dose even under the supervision of a neurologist – no effect, except that fatigue and fatigue got a little better (but can not say that this is due to the medication, because I had no choice as turning my entire life and wondering what I had done wrong, that it had come to that) and that I was secondarily severe headache and nausea … The exhaustion over time was thankfully better and also the eating disorders were gone as soon as I had changed everything. Nevertheless, I had great anxiety and panic (as well as fear of the fear) which should actually go through the Medis. Through a blood test it came out that I’m a Rapid Metabolizer (my liver recovers medicines so fast that the usual dose does not help). After no effect on paroxetine, my neurologist Cymbalta prescribed it to me. Paroxetine I almost did not feel – mild headache and body aches. First 60mg and then blood again, then increased to 90mg – and it finally turned an effect. Exhaustion got better, concentration too and the fear of anxiety disappeared completely. Nevertheless, I had a very low stress threshold and mood swings, as well as a deep fear of a renewed overstrain and change. Side effects were often dizziness, headache and sweating (which also changed over time). Sleep was thankfully never a problem for me. So my doctor increased to 130mg to tell an even better result. No way! Nothing got better, only the side effects stronger! So I got additionally 25mg Mirtazapine prescribed, which I had to creep in slowly. My doctor said that relatively many studies prove that it would work so well in conjunction with other ADs. The first days seemed so sedating with me, that after an hour of taking it, I became so tired that I could not think properly, everything became difficult. Waking up also became more difficult. When I was on a whole tablet, I kept it up for just a few days because I was always hungry and that was really 24-hour – just depressing! In addition, I took almost 6 kg in 2 weeks! I was struggling to do sports because suddenly I did not have any stamina anymore and was sweating heavily. Otherwise no mental change (or so minimal that I did not notice because of the strong side effects). So I only took half more and waited until the next appointment. Mirtazapine has been discontinued and I’ve been ‘clean’ for almost a week now – no side effects on weaning, my mood swings have worsened. I’m fine so far, but I do not feel well. I’m scared of every little thing and I waver between ‘Everything’s fine.’ and ‘I can not do it all.’ And so I am thinking – very laboriously. Now I take Valdoxan, let’s see if that brings something. In any case, I can only advise against mirtazapine!

    Paroxetine for Drive disorders; Borderline; Anxiety disorders; Social phobia; Depression

    I take Trimipramine 100mg + Elontril 300mg + Paroxetine 20mg … Elontril and Paroxetine in the morning 9 o’clock and trimipramine in the evening 21 o’clock … With all 3 drugs in combination I get along better and better with my mental quirks; -) … Me sleeping well can concentrate much better on me, I’m better off having a bit more motivation, a much more stable mood and the phobias are weaker. I think that will of course be even better, especially paroxetine increases the effect even more …

    Side effects: No side effects

    Paroxetine for Anxiety disorders

    The medicine has helped me a lot and I will probably take it lifelong, that is, to take, in the morning 20 mg. Because I would never again be attacked by panic and anxiety attacks, which then also turned into depression. My life has changed completely through paroxetine. I am carefree and cheerful, have fallen in love again and married. I work full time, play volleyball, have many friends – all very well. The side effects, however, were horrible in the first weeks: heavy sweating, total restlessness, even suicidal thoughts. Fortunately, my family was there for me during this time and after about ten weeks it has subsided and I am alive again. Why should I stop taking the pills if they make my life so much better? Other illnesses also require a lifetime of medication, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and others.

    Side effects: Suicidal ideation; Unrest; Sweat

    Paroxetine for Anxiety disorders

    Hello everybody, I am taking Paroxetine for about 4 months now, initially 10 mg, one week later 20 mg and another 30 mg one month later. Cause of taking is a total collapse with panic attacks without end. At that time, it went so far that even getting up without Valium in the morning was not feasible. Immediately I went to the psychiatric emergency room in Merheim and they helped me a lot. At least I feel in good hands and that’s worth a lot in such a case. The drug has helped me very well after some time and I’m already back down to 20 mg. I no longer have panic or anxiety attacks and can work, go out, have fun and everything else that goes with it. The 20 mg I will now continue for two to three months, then down to 10 mg and then let it crawl out very slowly. Among the side effects with me: – regularly strong feeling of weakness, where I would like to just collapse – strong sweating, strangely much stronger under the right armpit – first as good as no libido and also with the orgasm is then such an art in itself. That has then re-regulated, but since I have reduced the dose, the libido is back as well as gone – slight weight gain during the 20 mg, at 30 mg, however, another 4 kg within a month, that must definitely down again … 😉 – during the 30 mg here and there times an inexplicable bruise – drowsiness. As soon as I am calm, I could sleep hour after hour-occasionally a slight tremor, but in absolutely negligible intensity. And what else is to mention: When I went down from 30 mg to 20 mg two weeks ago, I have first Weaning symptoms noted: – gratuitous anxiety within the first two hours after ingestion – nightmares par excellence. But whatever? Then at least something is going on while you sleep. 🙂 – Heavy night sweat, I guess, that is related to the nightmares – often times shaky knees, especially in situations where you obviously can not use it. – again no libido These withdrawal symptoms went but after three to four days past (except for the still missing libido). I’m still curious how it will be if I put it off in a few months completely. Greetings and above all: Cheer up! Torsten
