I'm going through Paxil withdrawl right now and I say it is h*ll. I have "electric head zaps", headaches, upset stomache, can't sleep, anxities. I'm also switching my antiPsychotic drug Geodon. I also had such bad dizziness that I felt drunk and was walking into walls. My pdoc gave my 10 days worth of 10mg of Prozac (which stopped the dizzeness) and Klonopin for the anxities. My pdoc say that Prozac has a very long half life compared to Paxil and so it should help transition me off of the Paxil. I have to say I wish I never took it. I saw on a Web site that Paxil is the worse drug to get off off with withdrawl effects. Even worse than Xanax ( and I thought that was bad when I went off of them). Good luck and hope this helps you. Hang in there and make sure you have a good support system. You need it.
