    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 Depression

    Had severe side effects from the beginning (RLS, tinnitus, optical illusions, anorgasmia) and then weaning after only a short time. Then I found more about the problems and risks of paroxetine and the gesatmen group of SSRI in the antidepressant forum Germany and would never take it again today and recommend it to anyone.

    Paroxetine really helped me a lot with my fears that I would take it at any time, should it ever get that bad. However, during the treatment I completely lost the interest in sexuality and was no longer able to reach orgasm. In addition, I became more and more emotionless. I was never really sad but never really happy. Now I stopped paroxetine completely 3 weeks ago, since the complaints started properly. On the one hand, I felt reborn, no longer afraid, full of joie de vivre, and the sexual dysfunctions were gone. However, for two weeks at a time I was sick and dizzy. Well, after 3 weeks it has already gotten a little better, but I still have twitching, dizziness and ants running in the limbs.
