    Paroxetine for Adh syndrome; Depression

    My psychiatrist prescribed me paroxet in 2002 to treat my depression and my ADD. After a long time of creeping (about 2 months half of the normal dosage, I think that was 10 mg) with no success, I have the normal dosage (I think 20 mg) taken. At the beginning of December 2002 I had the manic phase described in the instruction leaflet as a rare side effect, i. I could not sleep at all, had an exaggerated amount of ideas and plans that I was unable to carry out because of a lack of sleep, had talked too much, got nothing done and felt like someone who had taken drugs. About 2 months after discontinuation of the paroxet these side effects were corrected.

    Side effects: Mania

    Paroxetine for Depression

    I took this medicine in 2010 for about 4 months in a dosage of only 20 mg. Since I later took citalopram and venlafaxine, I have comparisons with other antidepressants. Paroxetine had a very strong effect on me from the beginning even in this low dosage. For the first three to four days, it felt like forklift driver Klaus was rearranging my brain. At least I had that picture in my head. Most likely, I would equate this side effect with confusion. After that, positive and negative emotions were swept away. Even with triggers that previously could cause or exacerbate my depression, such as As depressive music, there was nothing to get. Finally, I was able to concentrate on my therapy. Over the course of the intake, I felt manic for several weeks until my condition stabilized at a normal level. When I stopped taking the drug, I felt some kind of electric shock in my lips. That was not bad. I can recommend Paroxetine to a limited extent, but Venlafaxine has a better effect on me.

    Side effects: Mania; Confusion

    Paroxetine has worked well against the depressive episode even with minimal dosing. Unfortunately, it has reinforced the manic phases. It disinhibits too much and changes the personality to do things that are atypical of one’s personality. In addition, a weight gain occurs and there are strong orgasmic disorders. The absolute worst thing about this drug is the withdrawal symptoms. Already in some forums I have found the hint that the withdrawal is comparable to a cocaine withdrawal. I can confirm that too, even though I swapped it very, very slowly. The withdrawal is not mentioned in this form in the package insert. He is completely downplayed, that’s a scandal. Beware of this drug. Hardly anyone succeeds in ever putting it down. I fought the withdrawal symptoms for four months, with the surges in the brain that you feel were the most harmless weaning. NEVER AGAIN!!!
