Re: Dropping Paxil, Help Please.... ASAP

Dropping Paxil was a withdrawal nightmare for me. Wellbutrin ended the nightmare quite effectively and immediately. Even after tapering off the paxil, while it was still in my system, forgetting my welbbutrin in the AM would spell disaster from about 10 AM till 15 minutes or so after I got my belated daily dose down. The day I knew I was clean of the paxil was the day I forgot my meds and made it through the day without crumbling.

OTOH, Wellbutrin alone was a disaster for me as well. My pdoc believes that was because I started out on too high a dose (300mg/day from day one, soon up to 450). A year and a half later, I'm finally giving SSRIs the boot completely having had no good response to them even with augmentation. In five or six weeks, I might be able to tell you how a TCA+low dose of Wellbutrin (50-100mg) works for me, but that's hardly ASAP.

Whatever you do try, I hope it goes well for you!
