    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!

    Paroxetine for Burnout syndrome

    In 2002, a 78-year-old woman ran into the truck with suicidal intent. She died immediately. The nervous overburdening then resulted in total burnout 2 years later (nothing went any further), even when the family doctor called by my father came I wanted to run away in panic , Paroxetine is the drug of first choice in post-traumatic stress disorder, panic attacks and agoraphobia, but you have to be aware that the effect will not occur until 6 – 8 weeks, the time until then is hell (suicide, self-mutilation, palpitations, sweating, total inner Empty). Once you have survived this beautiful … time the recovery has taken place in a surprisingly short time (2 – 4 days). At the beginning of the treatment you need someone who is watching, possibly statonär. stay tuned.

    Paroxetine for Drive disorders; Social phobia; Depression

    Take paroxetine for about a year. It was prescribed by my psychiatrist because of mild depression, listlessness, future, and social anxiety. My first and only antidepressant. 20mg daily. The side effects came quickly. Stomach pain, heavy sweating, sexual disinterest, headache. After about 4 weeks, the effect began slowly. Social anxiety disappeared increasingly. Easy no-feeling. Almost all initial side effects disappeared after about 2 months. What remains is the loss of libido. I feel like it, but it can be very hard to orgasm. That frustrates me a lot. I also gained weight. Dreams changed a lot after 5 months. Very confused and still very real. In my opinion, I can sleep well. People who sleep next to me, however, claim that I have breath interruption and talk a lot during sleep. My personality has changed a lot. I am more open, no more anxious and active. I wanted to achieve that. Negative (for others) is that I am partly too open and fearless. Come over partially arrogant. The biggest side effect is that it does not bother me. The effect of paroxetine intensifies with me extremely, if I do not eat, take a lot of caffeine or alcohol. I am very active, almost high, fluttery. Besides, I want to do everything, but could forget everything without appointment reminders. A lot of structure helps me. Since paroxetine I have increased alcohol consumption and must be very careful in the area. Not recommended for addicted people.

    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.

    Since 2001, when a trauma therapist diagnosed BL, I take paroxetine 40 mg. At first, I only noticed dry mouth and heavy sweating, but I thought that would happen over time. Unfortunately, there was still an enormous increase in weight, constant hunger cravings, sleeping or sleeping difficulties and the most disgusting were the sudden onset of violent diarrhea immediately after eating. Suddenly, I could no longer properly metabolize the most normal meals and shit my pants on the way. if there were no toilets. When I informed the doctor and pharmacist, they said, it does not come from the pills, so maybe they ate wrong. Today I go z.T. only with deposits / diapers from the house. It was not until I found out by chance on the Internet that there were a few more people who had this irritable bowel syndrome in connection with the paroxetine that I finally had the proof. Now, after 16 years, I’ve been silly with the SSRI, but especially with paroxetine in all variations. With the agreement of the HA, I have reduced from 40 to 30, from 30 to 20, from 20 to 10 and then, intervals of 10 to 14 days per reduction of the 10 series. Now, of course, there are unbearable side effects, like the electric shock syndrome in mind. HA says something like that does not exist. The ass should even take this drug itself and then crawl out after years, that’s what I wished most doctors who simply do not want to believe their patients, or tell them it was all imagination or came from other things. He also denied me the heavy weight gain, even though I have been suffering from stress urinary incontinence ever since, because as a woman I also have weak ligaments / connective tissue and are burdened by my geriatric care job from the past. I do not know yet how long I can and will tolerate these strong mood changes, backache and nerve pain, constipation, then diarrhea, cravings for alcohol and nicotine, etc.

    Paroxetine for Anxiety disorders

    The medicine has helped me a lot and I will probably take it lifelong, that is, to take, in the morning 20 mg. Because I would never again be attacked by panic and anxiety attacks, which then also turned into depression. My life has changed completely through paroxetine. I am carefree and cheerful, have fallen in love again and married. I work full time, play volleyball, have many friends – all very well. The side effects, however, were horrible in the first weeks: heavy sweating, total restlessness, even suicidal thoughts. Fortunately, my family was there for me during this time and after about ten weeks it has subsided and I am alive again. Why should I stop taking the pills if they make my life so much better? Other illnesses also require a lifetime of medication, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and others.

    Side effects: Suicidal ideation; Unrest; Sweat

    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

    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.

    I have been taking this medication for almost 2 years. After getting all the side effects listed on the leaflet for almost two weeks, I’ve been rewarded for persevering. The side effects gradually decreased and the positive features came out. Since taking it, I feel much better. I rarely have any more panic attacks, I am freer and participate in life again. Of course, there is something negative, such as weight gain, sweating and the libido is limited, but that is irrelevant to me. Although I hope to be able to live without medication again sometime, but if it should not be the case, I can live with it.

    Paroxetine for Depression

    The purpose of this drug has met in principle well. Mood brightening, increased drive, better sleep, … Over the years, however, the side effects were distressing. As side effects during the treatment I had primarily sweating, hot flashes, lack of libido. Over the complete 2 years! As unacceptable, however, the side effects at weaning after 2 years out (creep out of 40mg within 4 weeks): severe dizziness, headache, circulatory difficulties, short-term (secondarily) sensory disorders primarily in the face and hands, fatigue, lack of drive. For that, the paroxetine allegedly does not make it dependent, it is extremely unpleasant and tedious to get away from it!

    Paroxetine for Anxiety disorders

    Hello everybody, I am taking Paroxetine for about 4 months now, initially 10 mg, one week later 20 mg and another 30 mg one month later. Cause of taking is a total collapse with panic attacks without end. At that time, it went so far that even getting up without Valium in the morning was not feasible. Immediately I went to the psychiatric emergency room in Merheim and they helped me a lot. At least I feel in good hands and that’s worth a lot in such a case. The drug has helped me very well after some time and I’m already back down to 20 mg. I no longer have panic or anxiety attacks and can work, go out, have fun and everything else that goes with it. The 20 mg I will now continue for two to three months, then down to 10 mg and then let it crawl out very slowly. Among the side effects with me: – regularly strong feeling of weakness, where I would like to just collapse – strong sweating, strangely much stronger under the right armpit – first as good as no libido and also with the orgasm is then such an art in itself. That has then re-regulated, but since I have reduced the dose, the libido is back as well as gone – slight weight gain during the 20 mg, at 30 mg, however, another 4 kg within a month, that must definitely down again … 😉 – during the 30 mg here and there times an inexplicable bruise – drowsiness. As soon as I am calm, I could sleep hour after hour-occasionally a slight tremor, but in absolutely negligible intensity. And what else is to mention: When I went down from 30 mg to 20 mg two weeks ago, I have first Weaning symptoms noted: – gratuitous anxiety within the first two hours after ingestion – nightmares par excellence. But whatever? Then at least something is going on while you sleep. 🙂 – Heavy night sweat, I guess, that is related to the nightmares – often times shaky knees, especially in situations where you obviously can not use it. – again no libido These withdrawal symptoms went but after three to four days past (except for the still missing libido). I’m still curious how it will be if I put it off in a few months completely. Greetings and above all: Cheer up! Torsten

    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.

    I take paroxetine over a long period of time. At the discretion of the health insurance companies, I have had to try out a colorful variety of this drug from the various pharmaceutical companies. Starting with the original Seroxat, which was relatively new on the market at that time, over the counterfeit preparations of the other. Interestingly, each preparation had a different effect, although the same content. It started with side effects when forgetting the drug about the general condition and side effects. I can say that the original was the strongest in its effect, but also had the strongest side effects. Because I am not a friend of the long-term treatment with pharmaceutical drugs, I have tried over the years, the drug creeping off. After being on the side of psychotherapy (in my opinion absolutely necessary for diseases in this area, although it is not supported by all doctors) was almost so far; I had arrived at 5 mg per day, my old disease began to slowly make itself felt again. So I am back to the full dose of 20 mg since the beginning of the year. I find absolute crap and now try it with homeopathy. Here are the side effects that all paroxetine preparations had more or less the same: -If omitting a daily dose dizziness slight nausea from late afternoon or towards evening, occasionally intense dream conditions at night -Night sweating -long ingestion slight trembling throughout the body, especially the – left hand with partial loss of force (objects fall from the hand) – muscle tension strong, signs of wear on joints such as wrist, ankles, knee joints, toe joints – tensions – despite drug occasional appearance of the panic attack in a modified form (fall in Ohmacht, sudden attack without prior Announcement, aching legs with loss of control) -light weight gain, change in body proportions due to deposition of fat pads Since I can lead by this drug but a completely different life, I accept this. Nevertheless, I am constantly on the lookout for any new knowledge, possibilities or research results, so that I no longer have to take the medication constantly.
