    I got on really well with Paroxetine … I was fine except for short lows. At the beginning of the treatment I suffered from sleep disturbances and hot flashes. After 1-2 weeks everything had normalized. Unfortunately, it caused a strong libido disorder. In order not to jeopardize my relationship, I switched to Elontril with medical supervision.

    I have been prescribed paroxetine because of an anxiety disorder. I should slowly creep the drug over several weeks. Since I know myself, I have neither read the leaflet, nor have I googled. In short, I entrusted to the advice of my doctor and started to take the drug. The first 5 days 5mg 1-0-0. After exactly these 5 days, I have the drug without consulting my doctor abdicated arbitrarily. Why? The NW were from the 3 day ever worse. I got agitated, got nervous and shaky, got a hot flash after the other and my blood pressure shot to unusual heights. My resting blood pressure was 168/110, even though I am a blood pressure patient and taking medications. I do not want to know where my blood pressure would otherwise have arrived. Apart from the fact that my blood pressure has gone out of bounds, I have had to fight in this short period of ingestion with terrible racing heart. Today, on the second day after stopping the intake, I struggle with nervousness, severe internal restlessness, palpitations, trembling and trepidation. My conclusion: look for an alternative medicine with the doctor. I do not want to imagine what would have happened after 4 weeks in my body. If this is what I’m going through a shallow form of weaning, I NEVER want to experience the full extent of what I’ve read on the internet afterwards. This drug is not without reason in the UK and USA in disrepute. If it goes differently FINGER OFF this hell stuff.

    Paroxetine for Depression

    The purpose of this drug has met in principle well. Mood brightening, increased drive, better sleep, … Over the years, however, the side effects were distressing. As side effects during the treatment I had primarily sweating, hot flashes, lack of libido. Over the complete 2 years! As unacceptable, however, the side effects at weaning after 2 years out (creep out of 40mg within 4 weeks): severe dizziness, headache, circulatory difficulties, short-term (secondarily) sensory disorders primarily in the face and hands, fatigue, lack of drive. For that, the paroxetine allegedly does not make it dependent, it is extremely unpleasant and tedious to get away from it!
