> I have taken paxil for about 2 years and I have to say I know the in's and out's of the drug. I know the hell you pay for skipping a dose (or even just taking it a couple hours late, and as of yesterday, how nightmarish you feel when you are weaning off of it. Jolts of electricity all over your body when you move your eyes, head, or body. Blurred vision when you least expect it. Panic attacks that hit you when you are shopping for groceries, watching tv, reading, sitting at school, ANYWHERE! Chest tightness like you heart is attacking you, feels like the air you breathe in is empty and worthless. (Am I dying?)....I have to be, why would I feel this way if I weren't.
> But her I am to see another day of horrid withdrawal symptoms. Does anyone out there who goes through this nasty problem have any suggestions for getting through it?

I was on paxil when I started college, for 2 years. Prescribed by some md at kaiser. No regular visits, just 2 years worth of pills. Then I ran out, I didnt have healthcare anymore, I did not have a choice whether to stop or not to stop. It was hell, I know what you mean. I 'was' on one bright pink pill a day. 10mgs? All I can say with my experience, is if you dont have any benzos or heavily sedating drugs, you gotta just wait it out. The withdrawls from hell will stop. I got myself into paxil without knowing anything about the side effects. I've spoken with someone who had been on heroin for years, and they experienced the same withdrawls. 'It gets in your bones.' They had said. It's a little creepy.
Then I got a good doc who was anti paxil. I told my story of the 'paxil'. He reacted as if I had survived a wilderness catastrophy. He doesnt prescibe it to anyone, ever. I think he tried it maybe....good luck, hang in there.
