    Paroxetine for Mood swings; Fatigue; Anxiety disorders

    I’m not 20 yet and have a lot of bad experiences for my age with AD. After a major change, panic attacks, extreme fatigue and eating disorders increased. The doctor prescribed me 50mg Tresleen (but helped absolutely nothing, was so desperate that I have even increased to 100mg, which in turn has brought nothing). I felt the sitting down physically speaking I had a headache and body aches (psychically, nothing had changed). I then went directly to a psychologist who recommended paroxetine to me (since my mother had responded very well to it and he said that something similar happens in the brain and therefore I will respond well). Unfortunately, I took the paroxetine for a long time, tripled the dose even under the supervision of a neurologist – no effect, except that fatigue and fatigue got a little better (but can not say that this is due to the medication, because I had no choice as turning my entire life and wondering what I had done wrong, that it had come to that) and that I was secondarily severe headache and nausea … The exhaustion over time was thankfully better and also the eating disorders were gone as soon as I had changed everything. Nevertheless, I had great anxiety and panic (as well as fear of the fear) which should actually go through the Medis. Through a blood test it came out that I’m a Rapid Metabolizer (my liver recovers medicines so fast that the usual dose does not help). After no effect on paroxetine, my neurologist Cymbalta prescribed it to me. Paroxetine I almost did not feel – mild headache and body aches. First 60mg and then blood again, then increased to 90mg – and it finally turned an effect. Exhaustion got better, concentration too and the fear of anxiety disappeared completely. Nevertheless, I had a very low stress threshold and mood swings, as well as a deep fear of a renewed overstrain and change. Side effects were often dizziness, headache and sweating (which also changed over time). Sleep was thankfully never a problem for me. So my doctor increased to 130mg to tell an even better result. No way! Nothing got better, only the side effects stronger! So I got additionally 25mg Mirtazapine prescribed, which I had to creep in slowly. My doctor said that relatively many studies prove that it would work so well in conjunction with other ADs. The first days seemed so sedating with me, that after an hour of taking it, I became so tired that I could not think properly, everything became difficult. Waking up also became more difficult. When I was on a whole tablet, I kept it up for just a few days because I was always hungry and that was really 24-hour – just depressing! In addition, I took almost 6 kg in 2 weeks! I was struggling to do sports because suddenly I did not have any stamina anymore and was sweating heavily. Otherwise no mental change (or so minimal that I did not notice because of the strong side effects). So I only took half more and waited until the next appointment. Mirtazapine has been discontinued and I’ve been ‘clean’ for almost a week now – no side effects on weaning, my mood swings have worsened. I’m fine so far, but I do not feel well. I’m scared of every little thing and I waver between ‘Everything’s fine.’ and ‘I can not do it all.’ And so I am thinking – very laboriously. Now I take Valdoxan, let’s see if that brings something. In any case, I can only advise against mirtazapine!

    For three months, I am taking 20 mg paroxetine in the morning and it works very well. I am out of deep depression and can go back to work. I had side effects at the beginning (nausea, booze, strange dreams), after two / three weeks, nothing at all. The only ones are occasionally restless legs at night, which I have with a careful diet (no coffee after 12 noon, little sugar, no acidic food in the evening, no alcohol) under control. I’m glad that there are medicines for depression and that it works fast and well with me! Before I had Venlafaxin Retard for two / three years, but had to sell it because of the restless legs. I have not gained weight significantly in both medications, but I also pay close attention to it and do more sports or eat less if it is a few pounds too much.

    Paroxetine for Mood swings

    I took 20mg of paroxetine every morning. Strong nausea and very shaky hands, even restless legs occurred thereby. These were the strongest and most lasting side effects while taking. Apart from that, there are also occasional nosebleeds, blurred vision, hardly any appetite, and on 1, 2 days something like hallucinations (the feeling that the ground would be rolling, things would turn and move even though they did not move). The treatment with paroxetine was stopped after 20 days because of the strong side effects.

    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 Sleep disorders; Social phobia; Depression

    The initial side effect of mirtazapine is fatigue and appetite increase. In addition, feelings of being dazed and standing next to one another can occur. These side effects are slow to creep (with me it was 7.5mg) good to handle. The effect occurs after about 2 weeks. The usual maintenance dois is 30-45mg. At the beginning of about 8 KG zugemommen, but it regulates at some point most of the time. It only worked well against the depression. Fears are only moderately alleviated. That’s why my psychiatrist prescribed me paroxetine. After 3 days I had to stop the treatment because of severe nausea, immobility, tremor, anxiety, drowsiness, loss of appetite, yawning and nausea. Furthermore, I have read in various reports that paroxetine causes significant withdrawal symptoms, which makes it impossible to stop in some cases.

    Paroxetine for Depression

    Taking paroxetine (35mg) helped me get my life back on track. I had severe anxiety, thought and derealisation that made me unable to cope with my daily routine. I started with 5mg and slowly increased to 35mg. After about 2 weeks, I noticed how my brain slowly relaxed. Could me, for example, not more in my anxiety than when building a wall in front of it. The full effect occurred after about 4 months. The only negative thing I can say about the drug was the extreme yawning with nausea and diarrhea in the initial stages. But I gladly accepted that in order to have my life back. And do not give up. It takes time for full effect, but it’s worth the time before going through hell.

    Side effects: Yawning; Diarrhea; Nausea

    Paroxetine for Sleep disorders; Obsessive compulsive disorder; Depression

    For 4 months I have been taking Opipramol, which was my first antidepressant. At first 100mg per day was enough. After a month I was set to 200mg. However, I was constantly dizzy and sleepy. Was not capable of anything except lying on the sofa. Because of the high dose and the inactivity, depression and the worst nightmares were added so that I dosed down to 50mg in the evening to sleep and I met a neurologist, who then prescribed me paroxetine and lorazepam. Take Paroxetine now for about 3 weeks due to panic attacks with depression and obsessive thoughts. Starting with 10mg in the morning, I’m up after 4 days to a dose of 20mg. Side effects at the beginning of treatment were nausea, dizziness, tension and drowsiness with sleep disturbances. Now after 3 weeks from time to time the tension is still present. In addition, I have restless legs and can no longer get an orgasm. Now and then loss of appetite. Finally, I can say that I’m already much better after 3 weeks. My panic attacks and obsessional thoughts are almost gone. When an attack comes, it’s over pretty soon. Hope it gets even better and I may be able to sell the opipramol soon. I can not give any information about Lorazepam, which was prescribed to me as needed during attacks, since I have not taken it once. I was the risk of dependence too big.

    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 Obsessive compulsive disorder

    Nausea in the first week, as predicted by the doctor. Effect occurred immediately and continues to this day (5 months later). Constant tiredness accompanies me, but I like to buy. When weaning after 2 days dizziness and sweats. For me, the problem is that I am immediately out loud loud or aggressive, if not everything is running perfectly or someone is not acting as I would like or suddenly there is great stress. Adaptation disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder is the diagnosis and the paroxetine lets me still recognize the situation, but prevents the reflex that I freak out immediately. Furthermore, I no longer have this compulsion to be perfect with everyone. I take half a half in the morning and another half at noon. Since the beginning.

    Side effects: Aggressiveness; Nausea; Fatigue

    Paroxetine for Burnout syndrome; Depression

    I want to talk about my bad experiences with Paroxat. Because of depression and fatigue syndrome, I took Paroxate 20 mg every day for over seven months. Result: – Emotionally I have been dulled after three months. I was neither sad nor happy and had only a few sensations. I was constantly indifferent. And that was the only positive effect of this drug! – I have gained 14 kg within seven months !!! So two kg per month! And I had a dream figure before! A BMI of 20! I gained weight for no reason. I eat very consciously, so I could not understand this rapid increase in weight! – My libido and my orgasm ability were already zero after two months! Since I dropped it off, everything is coming back very slowly. – The drug made me even more tired than before! – And now the worst: The demeanor! I’m not a human who can blow something away so quickly, but the demeanor was the HORROR !! Unfortunately, I did not skip the medication. A big mistake on my part! You should really sneak it out! I had extreme dizziness and thus permanent nausea and permanent vomiting. In the end, I could not even drink more water without vomiting! Circulatory problems, balance problems, diarrhea, tremors, headache, eye pain, I have herpes all over the lip. I got a kind of little punch in my head, especially when I moved left and right. I was constantly hot and cold and then I sweated extremely and then had chills. I could barely sleep. After more than a week, after I still had these problems, I went to the hospital because it was very bad and I could not imagine that all these symptoms could come from discontinuing the medication. In the hospital I was completely checked through with the diagnosis: pure withdrawal symptoms !!! I had the choice: either to go back to medication and then sneak out or continue biting through and withhold the withdrawal. Conclusion: I have kept it up. Now two and a half weeks are over and I do not have the worst depreciation symptoms, BUT (!) I still do not feel normal, I still have dizziness and headaches and intestinal problems! A FEARABLE drug !! In retrospect, I had more side effects than effect! Everyone should individually decide WITH his doctor or psychiatrist, whether it really makes sense to take this medicine and vollzupumpen with so much chemistry!

    Paroxetine for Psychosomatic disorder; Social phobia

    I’ve been taking Paroxetine for 6 weeks now and I have to say I’m doing much better. Previously had a pretty bad phase which has been expressed by anxiety disorders with accompanying obsessive thoughts and psychosomatic symptoms such as diarrhea, general digestive problems, etc. This constant pondering on what could happen in certain situations and the physical discomfort has caused a moderate depression. Then I visited my psychiatrist, who prescribed me paroxetine. Had previously been prescribed sertraline, which did not work for me (except that I was dead tired) and was so skeptical about this drug. I must say the first two weeks of use were the HORROR! Had very bad thoughts of suicide, severe nausea (especially in the morning), loss of appetite, nocturnal nightmares, increased fears and came in the morning almost not out of bed. I was on the verge of putting the medicine off again as it was almost impossible for me to go to work. Since I had read in the instruction leaflet that in the first weeks everything can get worse, I reduced the dose in the second week of intake again from 20mg to 10mg (as in the first week) and hoped that the side effects would subside, what then also happened after about 2 weeks. From then on, I took 20mg again and I got better day by day. This constant pondering has greatly improved and social anxiety has also diminished (for example, in a seminar last week in a seminar it was easy to talk to the whole group). The psychosomatic problems have improved (no more diarrhea, no strange stomach sounds). It sets in a slight feeling of equality, which is positive for me, because I have always taken everything else very much to heart. In summary, I can say that this feeling of hopelessness had suddenly disappeared and I feel something like happiness again. Since I’m more of a skeptic about such meds, I never thought that something like paroxetine would have a positive effect. I am writing this post because I want to give hope to others who, like me, feel really bad a few weeks ago.

    Side effects: Nightmares; Anorexia; Nausea
