Having Withdrawals

I ran out of my Paxil the other day without any refills left. I thought I could make it to my next appointment, but these withdrawal symptoms are no joke. Please learn from my mistake. Call your doctor if you need more meds before your next appointment. Stopping abruptly (or running out) can lead to some unpleasant symptoms. #paxil #Paroxetine #withdrawals #Depression

Just Got Prescribed Paxil, nervous time start # # #

Hello all , I was just prescribe Paxil today after a month long bought of extreme anxiety and depression. I’ve had three panic attacks recently and have had a slew of physical symptoms that started out presenting like the flu only to carry on for weeks. I’ve always been anxious but the last six years has been a very trying time for me. The death of my father figure, infertility and being diagnosed with two diseases after years of suffering debilitating chronic pain. Two surgeries, infertility treatments , financial problems and crazy family issues have just pushed me past my breaking point. I was wondering if anyone out there with endometriosis or adenomyosis is taking paxil for anxiety and depression? Being such a hormonally charged disease gives me pause for anti depressents, but I don’t really know what to do anymore. I do yoga, meditation, etc and it doesn’t help anymore. Hoping this changes things 🤞🏻

has anyone taken risperdone and had increase in prolactin,loss of periods and other negative side effects

I have been taking risperdone for 7 months, I believe within thr 1st 1-2 months of taking it my periods stopped completely (after I had actually experienced 2 periods a month for 6+ months prior ). now I have increased levels of prolactin (milk in breasts), a tumor on my pituitary gland (your hormone capital ),and no periods at all. I have asked to be taken off this medication because now on top of all these things, I've read, that taking paxil (which I was just put on 2+ weeks ago after NUMEROUS ATTEMPTS AT OTHER ANTIDEPRESSANTS AND SO FORTH) that the side effects of RISPERIDONE can INCREASE when taking "certian prescribed medications", such as "paxil". #mental health #risperidone #BipolarDepression #SideEffects # #paxil #PituitaryGlandTumor

Getting desperate #paxil #withdrawals

I’ve been on Paxil for almost four years. It helped me so much at first. But lately I’ve been so down and depressed and they actually told me Paxil can cause depression!! It took me a few months to taper from 40mg to 20mg and the withdrawals were so bad! I’ve been on the same dose for the last few months but today I started tapering down to 15mg. Send prayers and good thoughts if you can. Withdrawals terrify me. I vape cbd for anxiety and considering starting the cbd oil again also.


Tapering off #paxil for my #Anxiety

So I was stepped down to a lower dose of Paxil on July 18th, had been feeling pretty good for the past months and I discussed it with my therapist and agreed on lowering the dose a bit.

However I feel tired and kinda flat emotionally speaking and of course more anxious than before.

Anyone has some advice on tapering off anxiety medication?


My struggle with anxiety/panic as a doctor #Anxiety #panic

New here, been following the Fb page for ages now, finally downloaded the app and joined the chat!
So I’m Andy, currently OB/GYN resident and lifetime holder of a panic disorder/GAD. Things started kinda early, around 7, and GI symptoms have always been the main thing. Manifestations have come and gone through out the years but somehow reached a peak when I was 24 (2016). Things were really bad at home, money-wise and I couldn’t find a single job all through that year. Residency admission was on hold and final results were delayed from September all the way up until December, and so that (admission meant a job and an income) kinda triggered my panic. I couldn’t leave home for weeks and even the thought of going to the store kinda made me panic. In the end I started my residency in 2017, with a bad disorder in hand and no medical control, but of course job and academic duties kept my mind off of the anxiety for a while.
I went to my first Psych appointment in December 2017 and she started me on #SeroquelXR which I found odd but given my bad mental health status I started taking it (although it took me about a month to finally give it a try).
Things went down the road the following 5 months and I found no relief with my Psychiatrist, much less with the medication I was on.
Things took a toll on me and at the end of May last year I literally spent a full week on panic (even if the books say it lasts an hour at most, it was full on 7 days). I was afraid of working, eating, sleeping (didn’t sleep for 5 days) and pretty much everything.
I was kinda forced to see a new psychiatrist in the hospital I work and that was my biggest blessing to this day. Someone understanding, kind and compassionate, who was truly making an effort in getting me better. I was started on #paxil (which I still take to this day), psychotherapy and was forced to take a break from work for 2 weeks.
Things started slowly getting better with time and I can finally say I function at a normal level most of my time. I went living on my own, started meeting some new people.
Anxiety comes and goes every once in a while and it’s usually very manageable, with the aid of Benzos when things get too difficult to handle.
Yesterday I started a lower dose of Paxil and today I’ve been feeling a bit more anxious than the usual, but still haven’t gotten to taking any benzos, hoping my friends, TV and board games will help me.
Anyways, long post, sorry for boring you, wanted to share my experience so far.

I wanna die every month, yup that time of the month

Every month I have really bad pms. For at least a week every month, I am so sad I want to die. I was on depo shot but that gives me really bad cramps. I started paxil 2 months ago and started therapy last month, talking about sexual assault issues from my past. Things have been strained with my husband. I've been sleeping alot. Thank you for reading this. #PMDD #depo #paxil #Therapy #Bipolar
