If I had known 6 years ago

I’ve not been feeling well today and I’m getting really tired of it. Everyday it’s wash, rinse and repeat. If I had known six years ago that Paxil would be so devastating to come off of, I would have never gone on it.

I am 100% thankful that when I suffered from severe PMS/PMDD, no doctor ever suggested Paxil. Actually I took fluoxetine for those issues and had almost zero withdrawal. (I would get horribly anxious and depressed during my cycle for 25 years.)

Anyway you’ve done well going this far. You must be close to the end so hang in there!


You can’t compare things. I understand, and I’m sure your wife does too, that one persons suffering does not negate anyone else’s.


Do you think if you took something like zofran for the nausea it would help?? I find it works almost immediately. You would have to get a prescription, but I would think your doctor would be willing to write one considering how pervasively this nausea is affecting you. It’s terrible to suffer like that day after day.
