Paxil

Paxil

I have been taking paxil When i got the diagnosis ADHD (and for the adhd methylphenidate) let’s say 7 years now. My new physician said I should stop taking them, because the long term effects. I was of the Paxil for very short time.... the pain was excruciating. I started again and the pain was gone... Paxil makes serotonin which is very important for sleep, happiness, overall feeling good. They also call it the happy hormone. Just a few weeks ago I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I told her I think adhd… read more

I Am Taking Paxil For Emotional Swings, My Doctor Thinks I Should Switch To Cymbalta.

I Am Taking Paxil For Emotional Swings, My Doctor Thinks I Should Switch To Cymbalta.

I am not sure that paxil is helping me as I do have emotional down days -- it seems that my physical pain and my emotional pain go together.
Cymbalta has been suggested to me but I hesitate to switch and I am wondering how others have tolerated cymbalta and how you were afftected by side effects. Thanks in advance, June

Paxil

Paxil

My doctor has prescribed 75mg in the morning but it makes me so tired and lethargic. I can barely keep my eyes open at work and I'm not very productive.
Would it make a difference of I took this dosage at night?

Medication Issues

Medication Issues

I was just wondering if anyone else has problems with medications that deal with serotonin? I can't take the medications like Cymbalta, it causes serotonin syndrome. So, I am trying Paxil, it seems to be causing me more pain and problems then when I am not taking it. I never use to have these issues, I took Celexa for years, had to stop because of insurance issues and then when put back on it 3 years later, I started having bad reactions. The Paxil is causing me to have more severe vertigo,… read more

Yeah, that does not sound like much fun and not much help either. Sorry you had to deal with that.

Problems With Anitdepressants?

Problems With Anitdepressants?

I googled sensitivity to antidepressants and I seem to have this. One person on the site wondered if it had anything to do with having fibro? I couldn't take wellbutrin due to anxiety reactions, and any others I've tried such as paxil, celexa, cymbalta, etc make me more depressed. Has anyone else had this happen? I'm also having more memory problems and coordination problems. Almost like I'm dyslexic when I type, and my body had begun to jerk out of the blue. I'm currently on NO… read more
