In reply to Paxil w/drawal question..anyone?, posted by katia on March 16, 2005, at 15:05:04

I've been off meds for a month now, simply because after 8 years of taking meds, I want to know what I really need to treat, illness versus med side effects.

Since being off for a month now, I have no anxiety, which is what I've been trying to treat!!!

My story is, I used to drink, I've been sober for 2 years, but have been taking meds for the past 8 years. Mainly SSRI's and mood stabilizers.

I feel a little spacey and a little non motivated (maybe light depression) but no anxiety.

It's nice to start with a clean slate to see what you need to treat every once in a while. I really think I'm more ADD than anything, but since I had anxiety mixed with depression, my pdoc automaticcally said I was BPII and anytime I complained about anxiety she said I was experiencing mania. ALL THIS TIME IT HAS BEEN SIDE EFFECTS. I originally started meds for anxiety and depression caused by alcohol.

If I have to go back on a med I won't have a problem with it, but at least I'll know from this point on what my core problem is and have a fresh starting point.
