Question For CAM About SSRI Withdrawal

Posted by Geezer on December 19, 2001, at 16:00:53

I am ignorant about neurochemistry but would like to ask a question please. It would seem a large number of people suffer "withdrawal" symptoms when discontinuing antidepressant drugs and the worst offenders (based on what I read) seem to be Effexor and Paxil. Is it likely the withdrawal problems are related to norep. rather than seritonin ? I have discontinued Celexa and Zoloft by substituting Prozac for a few days then just stopping Prozac-NO withdrawal. I have never taken Effexor or Paxil (have only done a little reading on the effects of both drugs to Norep.). Also have you received any info. on a "black box" warning from the FDA RE: Paxil-something to do with the liver ? In the 80s I detoxed from prolonged and SEVER Benzo. abuse, then a year later from SEVER Amphetamine abuse. All considered, it's a wonder I can think at all! All these problems were of my own doing NOT the fault of any doctor or any drug. If this question does not appear on the board or fails to receive a response I will understand - do not want to hinder anyone's treatment. Thank you and Happy Holiday.
