I’m a little lost right now

      11 Comments on I’m a little lost right now

It’s no secret that I’m struggling a bit right now. If I’m being honest, I’m struggling more than just a bit. I sound like a scratched record but the withdrawal from Paxil is killing me and it’s impacting me in many areas of my life, this blog being one of them.

Once upon a time, I had a direction and was moving in a somewhat linear fashion.

Lately, most of what you will read here are random thoughts and experiences because that’s just where I’m at. I know that makes it harder to follow and I understand that but my life isn’t easy to live either.

I’m really trying to make this user friendly and as helpful as to my families as possible. I ask that you remain patient with me as I work through a very difficult time.

I thought he was still on a partial dose of something…

Rob, again, sorry you’re struggling. Hang in there. Question(s) for you: do you feel like you were properly advised about going off Paxil when it was first prescribed? Was there any stated timeframe for you to be on it when it was first prescribed or was it left open ended? Were you advised as to any concerns about being on it long term? And although it’s not over yet, do you feel like your doctor (and you) came up with an appropriate plan for weaning off, and were you really adequately advised of the potential challenges that withdrawal would bring?… Read more »


Thanks for shining a light on this. They’re so widely prescribed these days, especially to teenagers it seems and then some doctors like to med stack which is even more crazy. People need to hear that there are issues with these meds and they can cause issues! I am not anti-med at all, however informed med choice is 100% critical
