    Hi Maria,

    Sorry you've had such a rough time with Paroxetine. I am on it for a second time- I took it the first time in 07' and it helped me loads. I weaned myself off of it after about 9 months with no withdrawal symptoms- thank gawd! The second time around they have helped again- I had severe anxiety when I first started again (same as first time around) and then again when my dosage was increased.
    I know this drug gets a bad name- but it has worked for me. I wish it would have for you as well. I asked for Paroxetine as I was prescribed Effexor first- but read too much about it- scared myself too much to take it

    We trust that the meds will work for us- but this drug isn't for you hun- I hope you can get over the fear to try another one if taking medication is what you want.

    Good luck!

    Thk u ever so much for ur reply ..that was my 3rd time of taking paroxetine thats why i couldnt understand how it has'nt worked for me i tryed to take it for as long as i could which was 5 weeks ..i did ask my doctor if my hormones maybe have'nt settled down after my termination and he said that doesnt have anything to do with it ,i saw a cpn nurse on thursday gone and he said the tablets have just put the icing on the cake so to speak and that emotionally i have been throu alot (not just my termination .moved twice had marriage ,come off my paroxetine ,probs etc all since august 09 to jan )... i just cant figure out whats up with me half the time i cant explain it ..all i know is i didnt feel this bad before i took the paroxetine again.

    Hi Maria

    I took Seroxat many years ago and it worked really well for me, just two weeks before i felt normal...Two years ago i felt i needed to go back on an AD and Doc prescribed Cipralex. Start up SAs were awful with Cip...and at the time i wished the doc had given me Serox. But i persisted with the Cip and started to feel normal after about five weeks. I weened of the Cip as i felt so well, but 8 weeks later fell into deep anx/depression. Doc knew i needed another AD and i explained that serox had worked well in the past, so onto serox i went. Well, it was nothing like the first time round, i'm four months in now, up to 40mg, and only beginning to see some light at the end of the tunnel. I truly believe that ADs become less effective second time around, and our best hope is to try a new one for each new bout of this illness. My doc now wants me on effexor or agomelatine, but i might stick with the serox as i'm improving now (4 months later). I think a new AD would be the way forward for you.

    Sending you love and Hugs
