Thanks! I should also say that I am interested in this as possibly a way to be off meds during a pregnancy.

The reason I went off Paxil was because we wanted to start a family (I was on 20mg for two years but the last four years I was only on 5mg and 2mg, just enough to keep from going through withdrawal! And I was just fine on those miniscule amounts. But after going through the final withdrawal I ended up worse than I have ever been in my life.

Obviously, kids are out of the question right now. Which is really hard as I am 36 years old and last year at this time I was feeling great on 1.0mg of paxil. We fully expected to be on our way to having a family. Now I don't know if I will ever get well enough to consider having kids. I mean I can function, but I'm not who I was and I certainly could not give a child everything it deserves right now.

I thought if rTMS worked, I could possibly make it all the way through a pregnancy or just get one booster session if necessary. I've got to say, I would think a booster session would be a hell of a lot less dangerous than all these drugs!
