    Beginning side effects approx. 3 months (sweating, tremor, dizziness, drowsiness, sleep disturbances etc.) After approx. 3 months everything over and as good as no complaints! Lingering side effect: Wide pupils and brain zaps (I can live with that: D) For anxiety disorders super!

    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.

    Paroxetine for Fatigue; Drive disorders; Social phobia; Depression

    For some time now I take against my anxious (self-confusing) -disabling personality disorder (social phobia) Paroxetine 20 mg (from 1A-Pharma or Paroxate of Hexal, which come from the same press in Holzhausen, according to the pharmacist). The first effect was that all at once (after years) I felt like switching on the CD player again and dancing to the music. The mood was better, but problems were pushed aside rather than having the drive to solve them. As a first side effect, I noticed some inner unrest that made it hard for me to sit down and do more complicated tasks or just read something. On the advice of my girlfriend, I then got me in the pharmacy Reactine duo (antiallergic with pseudephedrine) and then had the need and no problems with simpler everyday tasks such as clean up and wash away (which I always had to force myself, although it goes fast) , I take the pseudephedrine only occasionally to avoid an addiction (smoking bothers me enough) and an increase in my already slightly raised blood pressure. My sleep has not improved. In addition, there was an unpleasant, cramp-like tingling sensation in the right leg, which does not really hurt, but is mean. I got to know the most unpleasant side effect when I visited my girlfriend (long distance relationship): my desire for sex was reduced, which is not really bad in itself, especially since I had a normal erection, but in the end I did not even notice that I had a ejaculation: The muscle contractions were missing, and my girlfriend felt just a leak, as if I were leaking. When petting we then realized that what is out there, is actually sperm, but also much less than normal.

    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 Depression

    Hello fellow sufferers / I’m really glad that I found this page today and thank you for these reviews, because I’ve seen myself in the grave … after a raid 4.5 years ago I take everything prescribed by the bank has been. (since 2.5 years in pension) Several rehabilitation, reports and the usual theater with the professional association, which does not recognize the accident at work! Had at z.b. Trevilor dizziness when not accepting (forgot) Currently I take paroxetine, for about 1.5 years. My life has always remained the same, everything does not matter, mood swings, panic, fears, tachycardia, sleep disorders and the total retreat to this day. No giant steps but my peace at home. The only thing that is a little better, is that I can go shopping from time to time. My sense of well-being is gone, my sex life is completely gone and I always start everything and bring nothing more to the end, that annoys me very … Aggressive, I’m extremely rare. I have extreme sleep disorders. I go z.b. at 22:00 dead tired to bed, wake up at 00:30, soaking wet, sweaty, change my T-shirt, drink 3-4 cups of coffee, smoke and I’m busy at the computer. For years … sometimes I can not really do it anymore, but I have a great wife that always gives me courage, better than any tablet. After 2-3 hours I lie down again. The second sleep is sometimes 2-5 hours after, what do I know why? Again I’m soaking wet and sweaty, but in the second phase of sleep, I always have terrible dreams and I’m totally exhausted. Then I usually sleep again for 1-3 hours without sweating, despite some coffee. After that day, it is now z.b. 10:00: I do not get a turn and now drink beer, that beer makes me more calm and active, the mood gets better … after the second or third, I clean up the apartment, cook, go for a walk with our dog my wife already works. Sometimes, but I can not even take a shower for 5 days, I can / can not do it. Now I realized that I got more and more dizziness, for weeks almost permanent dizziness, that makes me terrified. I was not interested in the side effects, have enough worries. Now I made me crazy that it was perhaps a stroke or a brain tumor … boahhhh I’m so glad that there are others with these problems! Since today I go with the dizziness otherwise because there are side effects, that’s enough for me. For 7 days I take this paroxetine no more and as I read here I will go through the hard way – end and out with it! But what should I do now? will call my psychiatrist tomorrow and ask me, then I will definitely write a new review. Conclusion of today: a good day for me through this site here, I wish everyone, all the best. Greeting RolandK

    Paroxetine for Depression

    Medicine has helped a lot, but it has negative side effects: weight gain, sleep disorders, sweating, difficulty concentrating, fatigue, no desire for sex – and the worst side effects occur in trying to sell itMy doctor claims that there are no side effects, but that is not true !!! Vomiting, dizziness, severe depression, no feeling hungry, dizziness, panic …- had to take it again, I thought otherwise turn. I tried to sell it for weeks, but I can not do it.

    Paroxetine for Depression

    Keep up! To all skeptical paroxetine users, a positive report about the drug paroxetine. I used to take 10-20mg of paroxetine in the past due to depression with anxiety disorder and it was always very fast (about 1-2 weeks) again very well, had little side effects (gaining weight) and have the drug always again quickly (5-6 months) discontinued (mistake!) In the summer I had a lot of work stress and suddenly I got out of the blue while driving a car panic attacks and then came the fear of anxiety, mental sickness, thought circles, I could not enjoy anything , My neurologist then prescribed me fluoxetine 10mg to gain weight, but I did not tolerate the medication (initially, severe nausea, lost 4 pounds in one week!), Headache, anxiety, and panic, so I almost went crazy and on paroxetine The transitional period was really tough, I took 10mg for 4 days, 15mg for 2 days, and now 20mg for 14 days, the first days after the change I had total anxiety and inner restlessness in the chest area as well a constant feeling of anxiety, that slowly became weaker and now almost gone after 2 weeks! Further NW were fatigue, sleep disturbances, muscle twitching, trembling in the hands, strong palpitations, but that will all much less the longer one takes the medicine! I go back to work, I’m hungry again and can have fun! Conclusion: – I think the more often you take the drug the longer take it until it strikes – HAVE PATIENCE AND PLEASE KEEP THROUGH! I also thought that will never be good and does not work, but it just takes at least 2 weeks to notice any positive effect. – I switched from 1A Pharma to Neuraxpharm and feel that the NW (tremors, restlessness) have since gotten a lot better (but can also be imaginary). … AND … do not read horror stories on the internet and believe! Everyone responds differently to the drug and many relinquish it immediately because of the initial NW before it can really have a positive effect. It’s all so bad and Paroxetine is really a good drug 🙂 All the best !!

    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.
