    Paroxetine for Drive disorders; Social phobia; Depression

    Take paroxetine for about a year. It was prescribed by my psychiatrist because of mild depression, listlessness, future, and social anxiety. My first and only antidepressant. 20mg daily. The side effects came quickly. Stomach pain, heavy sweating, sexual disinterest, headache. After about 4 weeks, the effect began slowly. Social anxiety disappeared increasingly. Easy no-feeling. Almost all initial side effects disappeared after about 2 months. What remains is the loss of libido. I feel like it, but it can be very hard to orgasm. That frustrates me a lot. I also gained weight. Dreams changed a lot after 5 months. Very confused and still very real. In my opinion, I can sleep well. People who sleep next to me, however, claim that I have breath interruption and talk a lot during sleep. My personality has changed a lot. I am more open, no more anxious and active. I wanted to achieve that. Negative (for others) is that I am partly too open and fearless. Come over partially arrogant. The biggest side effect is that it does not bother me. The effect of paroxetine intensifies with me extremely, if I do not eat, take a lot of caffeine or alcohol. I am very active, almost high, fluttery. Besides, I want to do everything, but could forget everything without appointment reminders. A lot of structure helps me. Since paroxetine I have increased alcohol consumption and must be very careful in the area. Not recommended for addicted people.

    Paroxetine for Depression

    Hello, take Paroxetine for 3 months. Fear and depression are clearly limited until gone. Feeling of rapid overload also due to leisure stress depending on the form of the day. Side effects galore – unfortunately. At the beginning extreme fatigue. It took a few weeks for this to settle. Even after 3 months still increased need for sleep. Work was hard to imagine. Persistent nausea, from 7 days about 5, sometimes stronger, sometimes weaker. Libido loss, now regulates this again. Slight increase in weight, but also controllable. Permissive yawning. Extreme night sweat. Repeated changes of sleepwear necessary. This is very stressful – after 3 months 3 of 7 nights relatively dry. Sleep through, especially because of the very strong sweating. For a few days very intense dreams. No nightmares, but irritating and slightly disturbing content. Very (!!) strong flatulence / flatulence. Flatulence and defecation very strong smelling. I hope that regulates this soon! This is particularly stressful in social interaction (use of other toilets, visits from friends, restaurants). Incompatibility of alcohol. Low (!!!) Quantities okay, everything else led me to a several-hour film break, personality change and hospitalization because of alcohol intoxication. I can not remember the increased consumption of alcohol! Therefore, I strongly advise against alcohol in combination with paroxetine, the loss of control and the intoxication is bad.

    Paroxetine for Depression

    The first few weeks I have not noticed anything, maybe not paid attention. In retrospect, however, I notice that I had muscle twitching, sleep problems, dry mouth with heartburn and especially sweating, but obviously could not assign it to the drug office. A few days ago I had a nightmare, even worse I thought the dream was true and brought my life companion to it. Bad for a relative to see the partner standing next to him. The next morning, I was sure I would not take paroxetine anymore. I hope that no withdrawal symptoms come and that I may have to sneak out. Because, no withdrawal symptoms can be as bad as what I had to experience so realistically as a nightmare at night. Never again paroxetine.

    I take paroxetine over a long period of time. At the discretion of the health insurance companies, I have had to try out a colorful variety of this drug from the various pharmaceutical companies. Starting with the original Seroxat, which was relatively new on the market at that time, over the counterfeit preparations of the other. Interestingly, each preparation had a different effect, although the same content. It started with side effects when forgetting the drug about the general condition and side effects. I can say that the original was the strongest in its effect, but also had the strongest side effects. Because I am not a friend of the long-term treatment with pharmaceutical drugs, I have tried over the years, the drug creeping off. After being on the side of psychotherapy (in my opinion absolutely necessary for diseases in this area, although it is not supported by all doctors) was almost so far; I had arrived at 5 mg per day, my old disease began to slowly make itself felt again. So I am back to the full dose of 20 mg since the beginning of the year. I find absolute crap and now try it with homeopathy. Here are the side effects that all paroxetine preparations had more or less the same: -If omitting a daily dose dizziness slight nausea from late afternoon or towards evening, occasionally intense dream conditions at night -Night sweating -long ingestion slight trembling throughout the body, especially the – left hand with partial loss of force (objects fall from the hand) – muscle tension strong, signs of wear on joints such as wrist, ankles, knee joints, toe joints – tensions – despite drug occasional appearance of the panic attack in a modified form (fall in Ohmacht, sudden attack without prior Announcement, aching legs with loss of control) -light weight gain, change in body proportions due to deposition of fat pads Since I can lead by this drug but a completely different life, I accept this. Nevertheless, I am constantly on the lookout for any new knowledge, possibilities or research results, so that I no longer have to take the medication constantly.
