Cam, hard time switching from Paxil to Zoloft

Posted by Jackster on May 26, 2001, at 18:19:34

Hi Cam

You seem to know a lot about this stuff and I just wanted your advice. I was on Paxil for 3 years (40mg) for Agoraphobia with Panic attacks. Was brilliant. Weaned myself off - but the PAs came back. When I went back onto Paxil it didn't work nearly as well - apparently a common thing. Anyway - have decided to try Zoloft. Went straight from 40mg Paxil to Zoloft 50. First couple of weeks were OK, but I am now having the Panic attacks from hell - worse than I ever had before I started any drug. I'm only just keeping them under control with Xanax. I know it will be a couple weeks before the Zoloft kicks in - I just want to be sure that it's probably withdrawal from the Paxil that's causing the reaction? (and not the Zoloft). I know about the lawsuit against Paxil and am determined to get through this withdrawal.
