> I'm on Paxil (have been for five months) at a low 12.5mg. I'm also on about 12mg of Seroquel for sleep and 450mg of Trileptal. I've been dxed as BPII over a year ago.

> I'm feeling quite confused, bump into things, have bad spatial judgment. I had a terrible serotonin syndrome (withdrawal) with Effexor and Zoloft. With effexor before I even tapered down to quit. I feel moody and irritable and anxious at times. Paxil or mood disorder?

> I've read that being on long term AD use for BPs is not good. Is five months or longer considered long term? Not sure that the Paxil is doing anything good for me. I still have dips in moods. good days and bad. As if I'm not on any medication at all.

At such a low dose of Paxil, I would question the Seroquel or the Trileptal doses as a possibility.
