    Paroxetine for Depression

    Taking paroxetine (35mg) helped me get my life back on track. I had severe anxiety, thought and derealisation that made me unable to cope with my daily routine. I started with 5mg and slowly increased to 35mg. After about 2 weeks, I noticed how my brain slowly relaxed. Could me, for example, not more in my anxiety than when building a wall in front of it. The full effect occurred after about 4 months. The only negative thing I can say about the drug was the extreme yawning with nausea and diarrhea in the initial stages. But I gladly accepted that in order to have my life back. And do not give up. It takes time for full effect, but it’s worth the time before going through hell.

    Side effects: Yawning; Diarrhea; Nausea

    Since 2001, when a trauma therapist diagnosed BL, I take paroxetine 40 mg. At first, I only noticed dry mouth and heavy sweating, but I thought that would happen over time. Unfortunately, there was still an enormous increase in weight, constant hunger cravings, sleeping or sleeping difficulties and the most disgusting were the sudden onset of violent diarrhea immediately after eating. Suddenly, I could no longer properly metabolize the most normal meals and shit my pants on the way. if there were no toilets. When I informed the doctor and pharmacist, they said, it does not come from the pills, so maybe they ate wrong. Today I go z.T. only with deposits / diapers from the house. It was not until I found out by chance on the Internet that there were a few more people who had this irritable bowel syndrome in connection with the paroxetine that I finally had the proof. Now, after 16 years, I’ve been silly with the SSRI, but especially with paroxetine in all variations. With the agreement of the HA, I have reduced from 40 to 30, from 30 to 20, from 20 to 10 and then, intervals of 10 to 14 days per reduction of the 10 series. Now, of course, there are unbearable side effects, like the electric shock syndrome in mind. HA says something like that does not exist. The ass should even take this drug itself and then crawl out after years, that’s what I wished most doctors who simply do not want to believe their patients, or tell them it was all imagination or came from other things. He also denied me the heavy weight gain, even though I have been suffering from stress urinary incontinence ever since, because as a woman I also have weak ligaments / connective tissue and are burdened by my geriatric care job from the past. I do not know yet how long I can and will tolerate these strong mood changes, backache and nerve pain, constipation, then diarrhea, cravings for alcohol and nicotine, etc.

    Paroxetine for Burnout syndrome; Depression

    I want to talk about my bad experiences with Paroxat. Because of depression and fatigue syndrome, I took Paroxate 20 mg every day for over seven months. Result: – Emotionally I have been dulled after three months. I was neither sad nor happy and had only a few sensations. I was constantly indifferent. And that was the only positive effect of this drug! – I have gained 14 kg within seven months !!! So two kg per month! And I had a dream figure before! A BMI of 20! I gained weight for no reason. I eat very consciously, so I could not understand this rapid increase in weight! – My libido and my orgasm ability were already zero after two months! Since I dropped it off, everything is coming back very slowly. – The drug made me even more tired than before! – And now the worst: The demeanor! I’m not a human who can blow something away so quickly, but the demeanor was the HORROR !! Unfortunately, I did not skip the medication. A big mistake on my part! You should really sneak it out! I had extreme dizziness and thus permanent nausea and permanent vomiting. In the end, I could not even drink more water without vomiting! Circulatory problems, balance problems, diarrhea, tremors, headache, eye pain, I have herpes all over the lip. I got a kind of little punch in my head, especially when I moved left and right. I was constantly hot and cold and then I sweated extremely and then had chills. I could barely sleep. After more than a week, after I still had these problems, I went to the hospital because it was very bad and I could not imagine that all these symptoms could come from discontinuing the medication. In the hospital I was completely checked through with the diagnosis: pure withdrawal symptoms !!! I had the choice: either to go back to medication and then sneak out or continue biting through and withhold the withdrawal. Conclusion: I have kept it up. Now two and a half weeks are over and I do not have the worst depreciation symptoms, BUT (!) I still do not feel normal, I still have dizziness and headaches and intestinal problems! A FEARABLE drug !! In retrospect, I had more side effects than effect! Everyone should individually decide WITH his doctor or psychiatrist, whether it really makes sense to take this medicine and vollzupumpen with so much chemistry!

    Paroxetine for Depression

    I took 10mg paroxetine for the first 2 days. On the first day I felt a little better on the second night then severe anxiety and amplification of the symptoms. Paroxetine 20 mg starting on the 3rd day, improvement of the symptoms, but other side effects such as diarrhea, mild headache, and erectile problems as well as orgasm inability, as well as loss of appetite. In addition, insomnia occurred later, but this does not have to be directly related to the drug, eventl. Other influences have reinforced my depression. After 2-3 days without paroxetine the side effects were gone. I have now switched to mirtazapine after consultation with the doctor and will report my experiences in a few days.
