> Oh Jesus (sorry to offend out there) but this upsets me terribly. To put a patient in an AP that is NOT experiencing psychotic symptoms amounts to malpractice to me. Of course you are feeling like a zombie, that's what APs do- it's like a chemical lobotomy. Been there too. The atypicals aren't as bad and apparently some people have had success here augmenting their AD's with zyprexa, etc. You need to get off this stuff- go get a second opinion (sometimes you have to taper, but not always) Please, before you have permanent brain damage- I've seen it first hand and it's not pretty. Write back and let me know how it goes, I care- judy

I'd already decided to ditch the med, but am fighting in the dark like a headless chicken. I have no real strategy here and cannot see my doc until next friday.

I've decided to give paxil another whirl and have detailed this in my response to Cam's post below.

What was your experience? You survived?

Thanks for caring

Paul
