Paxil Serzone and Increased Anxiety

Posted by Gerry S. on June 7, 2001, at 12:51:58

For the treatment of major depression I was first prescribed Remeron which worked well at first then its benefit tapered off after four months. My doctor switched me to Paxil which, after two weeks, caused enormous anxiety--borderline panic. I stayed on Paxil for 6-7 weeks but the anxiety never became acceptable. I was taken off all antidepressants for two weeks, then put on Serzone. It appeared to start working in the first two weeks or so, and then also caused tremendous anxiety starting after two weeks. I was pulled off that drug also after 5-6 weeks. These feelings of anxiety were nothing like I have ever experienced in my life---i.e., they felt drug induced.

Does anyone have any insights into this phenomenon and what alternatives exist for me?
