Re: Paxil withdrawl breaking point - please help

In reply to Paxil withdrawl breaking point - please help, posted by Erin on June 21, 1999, at 1:20:56

I had an awful withdrawl from Paxil (a malpractice case indeed) and I just want to tell you that it will be alright. You might experience nausea, anxiety, loss of memory, manic episodes (even if you have no history of mania), severe rage, depression, slight seizures, excess sleep, etc. I just wish you the best. I know how awful it is.

> I have been off Paxil for two weeks and am experiencing severe anxiety, insomnia, and upset stomach (food has no appeal to me). To further complicate matters I'm in the middle of switching pdocs with my appointment with my new pdoc a week away (my current doc failed to tell me all of the wonderful withdrawl symptoms that I'd go through so I decided it was time to see someone new). I finally called my regular physician and he told me that anxiety is caused by a lack of neurotransmitters - which makes perfect sense - I only wish my previos pdoc had told me to expect this!
> Does anyone out there know if withdrawl from Paxil causes insomnia and stomach problems? And, if these things are caused by Paxil withdrawl, is this the result of fewer neurotransmitters or something else entirely?
> Also, if anyone has been through Paxil withdrawl before, what did they take to deal with the anxiety, insomnia, and stomach problems? My regular physician gave me a prescription for Xanax which I didn't find all that helpful - it just made me feel completely disconnected.
> I'm at my breaking point with this and welcome any feedback-
> Thank you,
> Erin
