    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 Social phobia

    Hello, for a year I am taking Paroxetine for panic disorder. The reason was a post-traumatic stress disorder with depression. I could not stay with people anymore and was absolutely impotent and sad. At that time she has prescribed my family doctor and said the effect occurs after about 3 weeks. That was also the case and I felt much better. My depression gradually disappeared and I was able to return to people and enjoy life. Today I can even work properly again. The side effects are not to be underestimated! I have gained more than 15 kilos and I have a lot of binge eating that was not the case in the past. I never ate sweets then because I had absolutely no appetite for sweets. Today I can not exist without Schoki in the house 🙂 The so-called electric shocks in the head made me initially very scared. Even in the emergency room where I could help because no physical causes were recognizable. Most come when I exceed the intake time or even forget. Then I feel like ausgek ….. and run around the whole day like counterfeit money. Almost as drunk. My libido had not diminished, but the orgasmic ability was limited at the beginning, which has now been regulated. Expressly I would like to warn against simultaneous alcohol consumption. One or two beers but then you lose the feeling of drinking which I did not have before. This resulted in total loss of control with increased aggression and deviance of the personality. That could then be very embarrassing and unpleasant, which is why I now give up on parties at increased consumption. Otherwise, I feel better and the side effects are bearable. Better than constantly feeling suffocated. My doctor now recommends me a psychotherapy and the tapering of the tablets. At the moment I take 20mg per day. How it develops I can not say. I hope that someday I can live without tablets. best regards

    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 Depression

    Mirtazapine was badly tolerated by me, so that I switched to paroxetine. Due to an ongoing extreme mental stress I have consumed this product for several years with medium success. It set a neutral feeling and everyday life could be reasonably overcome. However, a serious weight gain can also be confirmed by me. Nevertheless, the remedy I think helped me. The weaning proved problematic: the side effects occurred concentrated and violent – I felt like a junkie on withdrawal, it was the purest horror. 14 days sweats, circulatory collapse, gastrointestinal discomfort and muscle twitching from the worst. The dizziness persists. Those who have a stressful job should better settle in a clinic or at least on vacation and not during normal stress.

    Paroxetine for Depression

    Hello fellow sufferers / I’m really glad that I found this page today and thank you for these reviews, because I’ve seen myself in the grave … after a raid 4.5 years ago I take everything prescribed by the bank has been. (since 2.5 years in pension) Several rehabilitation, reports and the usual theater with the professional association, which does not recognize the accident at work! Had at z.b. Trevilor dizziness when not accepting (forgot) Currently I take paroxetine, for about 1.5 years. My life has always remained the same, everything does not matter, mood swings, panic, fears, tachycardia, sleep disorders and the total retreat to this day. No giant steps but my peace at home. The only thing that is a little better, is that I can go shopping from time to time. My sense of well-being is gone, my sex life is completely gone and I always start everything and bring nothing more to the end, that annoys me very … Aggressive, I’m extremely rare. I have extreme sleep disorders. I go z.b. at 22:00 dead tired to bed, wake up at 00:30, soaking wet, sweaty, change my T-shirt, drink 3-4 cups of coffee, smoke and I’m busy at the computer. For years … sometimes I can not really do it anymore, but I have a great wife that always gives me courage, better than any tablet. After 2-3 hours I lie down again. The second sleep is sometimes 2-5 hours after, what do I know why? Again I’m soaking wet and sweaty, but in the second phase of sleep, I always have terrible dreams and I’m totally exhausted. Then I usually sleep again for 1-3 hours without sweating, despite some coffee. After that day, it is now z.b. 10:00: I do not get a turn and now drink beer, that beer makes me more calm and active, the mood gets better … after the second or third, I clean up the apartment, cook, go for a walk with our dog my wife already works. Sometimes, but I can not even take a shower for 5 days, I can / can not do it. Now I realized that I got more and more dizziness, for weeks almost permanent dizziness, that makes me terrified. I was not interested in the side effects, have enough worries. Now I made me crazy that it was perhaps a stroke or a brain tumor … boahhhh I’m so glad that there are others with these problems! Since today I go with the dizziness otherwise because there are side effects, that’s enough for me. For 7 days I take this paroxetine no more and as I read here I will go through the hard way – end and out with it! But what should I do now? will call my psychiatrist tomorrow and ask me, then I will definitely write a new review. Conclusion of today: a good day for me through this site here, I wish everyone, all the best. Greeting RolandK

    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 🙂

    Medicine has helped a lot, but it has negative side effects: weight gain, sleep disorders, sweating, difficulty concentrating, fatigue, no desire for sex – and the worst side effects occur in trying to sell itMy doctor claims that there are no side effects, but that is not true !!! Vomiting, dizziness, severe depression, no feeling hungry, dizziness, panic …- had to take it again, I thought otherwise turn. I tried to sell it for weeks, but I can not do it.

    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.

    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 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!
