> the dumbastit gp i was gettin mine from NEVER SAID A WORD re: sudden cessation and thanks to him and his endless incompetence i now have a fuller understanding of hell than ANYONE should ever even NIGHTMARE of. one of the first things my new doc mentioned was the extreme difficulty in getting off paxil. i feel extremely fortunate to have him on board. it reeks that so few so-called "professionals" are aware of this truth. in a perfect world they'd ALL have to FEEL IT for themselves. then perhaps a bit of humanity/humility would leak into thier "practices". oy!

Paul,

You put it well...and as much as I try to stay focused on solutions instead of bitching...I have to agree with you here, as I am sure anyone who has felt the intense pain of getting off Paxil would. I really don't understand it, I mean, in 30 years I have NEVER felt the unbelievable pain the it caused me...I gave in it was so bad...and I have now put myself back on Paxil because I can't STAND the psychotic state that I was in trying to get off of it...I tried alot of suggestions...weaning...st johns wart...ativan...the only thing that I think would get me off of it is something that would put me to sleep for days...I have loads of will power, but this stuff has got me beat, and for now, I have to stay on it...I dont have the luxury of time much less the will to go thru this again. So I'm back on it, indefinately...thank-you so much pdoc...the drug companies that probably subsidize your income have got another addict...$75 a month for life as far as I can see...UGH

Thanks for the replies all.

Discouraged,
Rick E.
