Strange side effects from paxil

Posted by Brian on January 21, 2000, at 23:13:34

Well basically it seems to be acting like a mildly hallucenagenic drug in me lately. I experience a very powerfull euphoria sometimes. Not saying this is bad but it does concern me a little. I just stare into space and think about how beautiful everything is and I can't stop smiling. It just feels very unnatural. Also I've found that I often have closed eye visuals right before I sleep and right after I wake up. Even in the middle of the day when I put my head down I could see a vivid image of a person or item. Sounds sort of like the effects of X to me. Should I be worried or just enjoy these strange side effects.

For some people, some meds can trigger mania. You should definitely talk to you doc about this.
