    Paroxetine for Social phobia; Depression

    Have in recent years already made very good experiences with paroxetine.have taken it then over 1 year. Now I’m back at the beginning, so the side effects are quite annoying at the beginning. But with the time (I think 2.3 weeks) that’s fine. Side effects with me (at the beginning): Muscle twitching, loss of appetite, stomach rumbling, dilated pupils, twists, insomnia, tremor, dizziness (reads worse than it is 🙂 Despite the side effects just beginning treatment with paroxetine, I can recommend this drug .Ideal for me, because it treats many illnesses at the same time. With the settling I did not have the problems that are always so described, good is probably different from person to person. I had alcohol at the time as a crutch to settle, of course net is so great.

    Paroxetine for Depression

    Am on discontinuation of paroxetine: Within 3 weeks I’m down to 10 mg a day. Pull it now for about 10 days and then end. I feel so much better than before. I can sleep againParoxetine helped me for a while, but now I can not recommend it anymore. My mouth was always sore and I was sweating like crazy, very very bad !! In addition, I always had a stomachache + could not sleep anymore !!! Acid belching. And the worst with prolonged use: miserable joint and muscle pain without end, neck stiffness, pain pain everywhere. As a result, I was always sick and had to take more and more drugs, until collapse. I can not anymore. I took 40-60 mg most of the time. I took it about 5 years, with 1, 5 year interruptions. and it has served its purpose. If it is not better with my depression or coming back, then I will do everything I can to avoid taking meds. I will never take paroxetine again.

    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 🙂

    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.

    Paroxetine for Depression

    Hello! have been taking paroxetine for a week now. My neurologist first ordered me 10 mg in the morning. I felt very good on the first and second day. Meanwhile, unfortunately, some quite significant side effects have set in. These include loss of appetite, insomnia, mild headaches and an increase in anxiety. I once again had a fairly severe panic attack in the store, which has not occurred since I opipramol in intensity. Take the opipramol for about half a year. Initially worked very well, but then lessened in effect. My questions would be: a) Are 10 mg paroxetine sufficient? b) When does the anxiety situation with paroxetine improve? c) how is the combination of opipramol and paroxetine to be evaluated?

    Side effects: Insomnia; Anorexia; Headache
