    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

    The first weeks immediately 20mg were hell !! Duration of anxiety and daily mehrmlas panic attacks! I thought I was the worst person in the world, trembling, totally tingling inside, strong jaw muscles in the jaw muscles and cervical muscles, weakness (shaky legs), dizzy without end, twitching in the head and cervical to shoulder, bad thoughts persistently but never had suicidal thoughts! – I think a slower dose increase is better! Weight gain (about 13 kg), I do not know exactly if it comes only from the tablets, or, as I was much better: increased appetite – finally enjoy life again?!) I could eat, eat, eat .. … was active again ….. got my life settled .. felt very well, could relax – the head was empty – without constant self-talk and worries about this and that After weeks of taking: like newborn !! Everything was gone !!!

    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 Drive disorders; Depression

    At a dose of 30 mg / day, the following side effects occurred: Restless leg et al. Then after 5 weeks, the dose was increased to 50 mg / day. From then on there were strong side effects. As soon as I relaxed my muscles to sleep my limbs involuntarily began to move in all directions. Simply put, I beat myself. Side effects: – Restless leg – twitching – tiredness

    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.
