    Paroxetine for Depression

    I took this medicine in 2010 for about 4 months in a dosage of only 20 mg. Since I later took citalopram and venlafaxine, I have comparisons with other antidepressants. Paroxetine had a very strong effect on me from the beginning even in this low dosage. For the first three to four days, it felt like forklift driver Klaus was rearranging my brain. At least I had that picture in my head. Most likely, I would equate this side effect with confusion. After that, positive and negative emotions were swept away. Even with triggers that previously could cause or exacerbate my depression, such as As depressive music, there was nothing to get. Finally, I was able to concentrate on my therapy. Over the course of the intake, I felt manic for several weeks until my condition stabilized at a normal level. When I stopped taking the drug, I felt some kind of electric shock in my lips. That was not bad. I can recommend Paroxetine to a limited extent, but Venlafaxine has a better effect on me.

    Side effects: Mania; Confusion

    After months of anxiety, I had arrived at a point where I could not work anymore. Shopping, driving and all other things of daily life severely limited, because my everyday life was characterized by fear. After my neurologist prescribed me paroxetine, I was skeptical! Especially after the various reports. I crept paroxetine to 20 mg for three weeks. The side effects were actually not nice. Sweats, slight confusion and at night up to four times water. The sex lasted a bit longer … However, I must say that even the days with the most severe side effects (2-4 week) was nothing compared to my fears. After about 2 months, I suddenly felt that my side effects improved and my fears and the lack of motivation disappeared more and more. After about 3 months I had my old life back !!! At the moment I’m in rehab and a few weeks ago I successfully dropped paroxetine. Again, I was terrified. Especially because it was discontinued in 1 week. I had exactly 8 days of these electric shocks in my head, but with which you can still cope. Today is day 10 after the complete settling and I’m fine. Conclusion is, after tolerable side effects paroxetine has brought me almost a whole year without fears. During this time, my hard drive in my head probably stored enough fearless situations to remain stable even after I dropped off. I can only recommend this medicine. There have just been many sneaking in moments in which I have doubted and many have just cursed on the Internet. Luckily I held out and made my own experiences! Unfortunately, in people with depression and anxiety disorders, even objective assessments are somewhat marked by depression and anxiety.

    Side effects: Confusion; Sweats

    Paroxetine for Fatigue

    I got paroxetine from my family doctor and in addition by confirmation of a neurologist against my anxiety attacks, tachycardia, feelings of powerlessness, fear of full halls, rooms, especially enclosed spaces. I have never dealt with the side effects, because otherwise I get all in turn. By chance, I have read your reports and can recognize myself in all of you. The drug was also downplayed on me and explained as not addictive, as a very light psychopharmaceutical. But I have to repeat it to you, after forgotten taking dizziness as well as these flashes in the head. In addition, I often have dizziness and a Schwipp-Schwapp feeling in the daily routine, as when the brain swims around in the head. My wrists hurt, as do my ankles. Many things are out of my hands and I am partially confused. I have tensions in my neck that cause migraines. Since I take the drug I have increased dandruff and headjucken. I sweat unnaturally, at the slightest effort. In addition, I have 25 kilos in the 4 years and I was already a strong piece. In addition, I have partial vision problems. Dear people, that all I have taken 4 years and not attributed to the tablets, naive as I am. But I will now deal with it and try to reduce the paroxin slowly from 20mg. Thanks to your reports, I know that I have to be careful. I’m still trying to get therapeutic help, as I’m very afraid of new attacks. But I have to say that I’ve had anxiety attacks and heart attacks lately, despite medication. I wish you all the best.

    Confusion, in the first three days panic attacks of previously unknown intensity, time feeling distorted, most violent headache on waking Since I had taken Trevilor and painstakingly spent a year and a half ago, my sense of unreality, under which I have been suffering for 15 years, became many times more unbearable. After a few months, the panic attacks due to which I was originally prescribed Venlafaxine came back. Exasperated by exam stress, constant relocations and lack of social contacts my body developed symptoms such as shortness of breath, arrhythmia and a course of horror visions falling asleep, until I went back to a psychiatrist last week. This prescribed me 20 mg paroxetine a day. Since I remember the side effects of creeping in venlafaxine very well, I started once with 10 mg a day. The compatibility is quite good, with the falling asleep I had no more problems since then and it did not come to the nauseous dizziness as Venlafaxin. However, it has unimaginable effect on me the panic attacks, which still several times a day slamming reudig. Still work full-time and try not to let me show it. It is only a few days of taking and tomorrow I go up to the dose prescribed by the doctor. Better not driving it, that’s for sure. So, whoever reads this, getting on the weekend, on vacation, or better just stationary. Otherwise, all the best, you are heroes, that you persevere on this side!

    Side effects: Panic attacks; Confusion; Headache
