    Paroxetine for Sleep disorders; Social phobia; Depression

    The initial side effect of mirtazapine is fatigue and appetite increase. In addition, feelings of being dazed and standing next to one another can occur. These side effects are slow to creep (with me it was 7.5mg) good to handle. The effect occurs after about 2 weeks. The usual maintenance dois is 30-45mg. At the beginning of about 8 KG zugemommen, but it regulates at some point most of the time. It only worked well against the depression. Fears are only moderately alleviated. That’s why my psychiatrist prescribed me paroxetine. After 3 days I had to stop the treatment because of severe nausea, immobility, tremor, anxiety, drowsiness, loss of appetite, yawning and nausea. Furthermore, I have read in various reports that paroxetine causes significant withdrawal symptoms, which makes it impossible to stop in some cases.

    Paroxetine for Sleep disorders; Obsessive compulsive disorder; Depression

    For 4 months I have been taking Opipramol, which was my first antidepressant. At first 100mg per day was enough. After a month I was set to 200mg. However, I was constantly dizzy and sleepy. Was not capable of anything except lying on the sofa. Because of the high dose and the inactivity, depression and the worst nightmares were added so that I dosed down to 50mg in the evening to sleep and I met a neurologist, who then prescribed me paroxetine and lorazepam. Take Paroxetine now for about 3 weeks due to panic attacks with depression and obsessive thoughts. Starting with 10mg in the morning, I’m up after 4 days to a dose of 20mg. Side effects at the beginning of treatment were nausea, dizziness, tension and drowsiness with sleep disturbances. Now after 3 weeks from time to time the tension is still present. In addition, I have restless legs and can no longer get an orgasm. Now and then loss of appetite. Finally, I can say that I’m already much better after 3 weeks. My panic attacks and obsessional thoughts are almost gone. When an attack comes, it’s over pretty soon. Hope it gets even better and I may be able to sell the opipramol soon. I can not give any information about Lorazepam, which was prescribed to me as needed during attacks, since I have not taken it once. I was the risk of dependence too big.

    Paroxetine for Sleep disorders

    I started with opipramol for anxiety disorders, helped only to a limited extent … I had attacks anyway … then I started with Parxetin beta … the very strong side effects were unbearable (nausea, vomiting, panic, insomnia, dizziness , Convulsions) … I switched to Paroxat from Hexal … then had strong acclimatization, but after 4 weeks we went really well … until today … have 9 kilos increased, more frequent dizziness, severe sweating and nausea … but not so wild, in contrast to the panic … a high on paroxetine 🙂

    Paroxetine for Sleep disorders

    I get along well with the drug paroxetine (which I noted in an extra entry about paroxetine). It helps a lot against anxiety, panic, social phobia and bad mood (depression?). Because of sleep disturbances, however, I took trimipramine (trimineurin) in the evening, which I will discuss here in more detail. Initially 25 mg. I was able to sleep well, but the next day I felt like on drug. I was dizzy, had circulatory problems, in the morning flickering in front of the eyes, an uncomfortable heaviness of the body, sensations, etc. I went down to 12.5 mg. This drug feeling has diminished somewhat, but I constantly had difficulty concentrating and blurred vision, so that I could barely read. Even a weight gain turned up quickly. After 3 weeks I dropped it off. I have been without trimipramine for 4 days now. I’m sleeping worse again, but all the side effects have disappeared and I feel normal again. The weight has gone down to normal weight again.

    Paroxetine for Sleep disorders; Depression

    Especially on the first three days of use (dose 20 mg in the morning), paroxetine caused severe side effects: tiredness, drowsiness, nausea, headache and restlessness, temporary increase in anxiety, sleep disturbances. From the fourth day was already a slight effect (fears were no longer so threatening) felt. Since then, daily improvement, rest remained as well as sleep disorders. Due to the restlessness and sleep disturbances, the psychiatrist prescribed 15 mg mirtazapine in the evening in addition to paroxetine. This had a very strong sedative effect especially on the first day of intake and the next day until the afternoon I had the feeling to stand next to me. On the following days, there was a gradual improvement: The medication helps me fall asleep and I get well out of bed in the morning and feel quite fit. However, the drug causes increased appetite in me to binge eating and weight gain. These continue until today. Ultimately, I can take part in the combination of the two drugs again more alive and I am very happy about it.
