    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.

    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!!!

    Paroxetine for Depression

    I can no longer recommend the drug due to the severe weaning, although it helped me to get started in a normal everyday life and working life. My dosage was 20mg, reducing the first 10mg was harmless in contrast to the current symptoms but since I reduced from 10mg to 5mg about 2 weeks ago I am struggling with the withdrawal symptoms. At the beginning there were dizziness, nausea and extreme restlessness up to anxiety, I was completely lost and of course not able to work. In addition, there were strong sleep problems, which I still have. The nausea and the dizziness then went away, but I have now head fools for a few days, sometimes I have to take a painkiller to endure it. I’m still shooting more and my mood is extremely fast in the basement. A really thin coat I have right now and the thoughts circles again too fast, I have to take very strong care of me but I want to do it and endure the weaning, so I can get away from the stuff and finally get pregnant. I find it an absurdity that the doctors do not enlighten you about the possible weaning when you prescribe the drug. What I have read so far about serotonin drug susceptibility, paroxetine belongs to the one with the worst and most frequent weaning. Since you can damn but first try another preparation. The best are still the doctors who do not even take a full, if you already have severe symptoms with a reduction of 5mg. Have I already experienced everything. The experience I’ve had is that most doctors are totally incompetent in terms of stopping and prescribing an antidepressant and that makes me mad, I feel left alone pretty much alone.

    Paroxetine for Anxiety and panic attacks; Depression

    I am 33 years old and take Paroxetine 20 mg already 15 years. Yeah right, I think I outbid all here together. Get prescribed at 18 years old. Unfortunately, after such a long time, I can not remember how it is without these tablets. Therefore, I can not really give that information. All I know is that after the second or third intake I dreamed intensively at night and still dream every night until today and wake up really well in the morning sometimes. Fatigue is there every day. That is very unpleasant. There is no weight gain for me. Not a gram in the entire 15 years, which would be due to the tablets. 3 years ago I wanted to get down from the stuff and slowly sneaked out. The symptoms were: sweating, headache and insomnia. But everything was bearable. But when I was down to 5 mg, the panic attacks came. It was very bad. I had to go up to 20 mg again. I’m still there today. Although I’m feeling better, I do not dare to drop her off.
