I have been on this drug for about 4 days and hell does it suck. I started getting all dizzy and so sleepy to the point where I just want to lay I hardly have energy and my doctor recommends me to workout :/ Now I thought all these side effects will go away after waking up but dammit i woke up like if I had a hangover and with stomach pain today. I told my doctor about this and I wanted to get off it but he refuses me to get off the drug. The reason this was prescribed to me along with xanas 0.25 mg was for severe anxiety and phobia of going out. Now I am reading that this drug can cause you to faint and get seizures and im getting really scared I hate this drug :( I also want to know if you can go into shock by taking this?? Any help from people that take this please?? Oh and another thing Im scared to get withdraw symptoms and on top of that I cant think straight I tend to forget things more.

Paroxetine is a very good medication for anxiety disorders. Medications affect individuals differently. In clinical studies, Paroxetine was associated with somnolence (sleepiness) in 15-24% of patients studied, but interestingly insomnia occurred 11-24% of patients. Sometimes adjusting the time you take the medication can help with this. Since it makes you sleepy, you may want to try taking it around bedtime to see if this helps. Also keep in mind Xanax is much more likely to cause drowsiness, so consider that it could be related to that. Dizziness is a rare side effect of Paroxetine occuring in less than 2-4% of patients in studies. Dizziness can also be caused by Xanax. In studies with Xanax, dizziness/lightheadedness occurred in > 10% patients, so Xanax would be the more likely cause. Seizures and fainting are extremely rare in patients on Paroxetine. There has never been a case of true shock (low blood pressure unresponsive to fluids and requiring vasopressors) associated with Paroxetine when used at appropriate doses. A lot of the side effects you are describing may not be related to the Paroxetine and are more likely to be related to Xanax. I don't know how long you have been on Xanax and if these symptoms occurred around the time you started it or not. Just something to consider. Xanax is actually a very bad drug for anxiety. In some studies it was shown to be no better than placebo. It may also worsen anxiety in the long term. It is highly addictive also. I am not your doctor, so I don't know your case. Discuss this with your doctor. There are non-benzodiazepine alternatives, such as Buspirone that can be effective for anxiety. Xanax should not be stopped abruptly because it can be associated with intractable seizures. If you are going to discontinue Paroxetine it will need to be tapered off. Do not stop it on your own without discussing it with your doctor. Good luck to you. Answered by Jacquelin Ockleberry 2 months ago.
Parox- paroxetine anti-anxiety, depression?

Paroxetine is used to treat mental depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder (also known as social phobia), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Paroxetine belongs to a group of medicines known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). These medicines are thought to work by increasing the activity of the chemical serotonin in the brain. In deciding to use a medicine, the risks of taking the medicine must be weighed against the good it will do. This is a decision you and your doctor will make.You may have to take paroxetine for several weeks before you begin to feel better. Your doctor should check your progress at regular visits during this time. Make sure your doctor knows about all the other medicines you are using. Paroxetine may cause a serious condition called Serotonin Syndrome when taken with certain medicines. This syndrome is more likely to occur shortly after the dose of paroxetine is increased. The worse side effect I found with paroxetine was it sometimes didnt allow me to really feel how I was ment to feel at some situations especially been able to feelings. Also got bad sexual side effects all through my time on paroxitine which never went away or got better but I managed and had very understanding partner through the time so I was lucky I guess. Dont let all the stories scare you, I think there will always be people that things dont work for but they have worked for others, and a lot of people out there are taking paroxetine .

my husband was prescribed Paroxetine and he had been taken 20mg and his personality changed a little but when the doctor raised the dosage to 40mg my husband started being like he was very drunk and he had not drank any alcohol for over 20 years. after a week on the 40mg pill he started saying things that were not kind at all, and when he went to walk he walked like he had been drinking for all day and night! plus he became very scary to be around! my husband had always been very sweet and helpful also understanding but on this medication he was none of those! even our neighbors noticed the change in my husband, in the way he was slurring his speech, walking like he was very drunk, and not kind at all, with a very short temper! we asked a few of our other friends if they had ever taken Paroxetine, and if so how did they feel and act while they took it or was around someone else that was taking it. all the responses were very negative especially when the person that had been taking this medication was a male! my husband also just reminded me that while he was taking this medication he did not remember much of any thing. plus i have been married to him for 22 years and had never been scared of him until he was taking paroxetine! so my advice is not to take it! it does change the behavior of the person that is taking this medicine! good luck, and i would ask the doctor for a different anti depressant medication! also if your health insurance pays for effexor xr this is what my husband says helps him the most! i am also taking effexor xr and it does help me. Answered by Emmitt Agbisit 2 months ago.
It seems to effect men more negatively than women. My husband took this for years and had no side effects, but then developed some pretty good nightmares. This made him more depressed and moody and he did not like it. When he asked the doctor about this, the doctor said that with prolonged use, some people were experiencing more side effects and because that was happening, the doctor changed the medication to Effexor SR. Since he's been on that, he's been doing much better and the nightmares have stopped. So, moral of the story is: if it works for you, good, stay on it. If you're having trouble with it, ask the professional physician who prescribed it about your symptoms and get changed to a different medication if needed. All this self diagnosis stuff is NOT a good idea. You can only get this medication by prescription from a licensed physician so let that person do his job and monitor your symptoms, adjusting the medication as you need it.

Yes, commonly known as PAXIL.

Paroxetine and Paroxetine CR?
Not a detailed and satisfactory answer has come yet. Please pay attention on this. I'm still waiting.
Asked by Dixie Serratos 2 months ago.
Paroxetine and Paroxetine CR are both anti-depressants which fall into the SSRI category (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors). This is the class of antidepressant. Paroxetine (the normal one) is fully absorbed into the bloodstream 3-7 hours after taking it. When it is fully absorbed and all the medication is in the system you have reached peak plasma levels. After that the drug levels in the blood start to drop and only get "topped up" the next time you take a pill. Paroxetine CR is controlled release, or slow release, tablet. It takes longer to reach peak plasma levels but doesn't work out of the system as quickly as the 'normal' one. Therefore, over a period of time, you have higher levels of the drug in your blood. "Normal" Paroxetine is good for depression as well as anxiety and other symptoms too. For anxiety it is better to take the CR as the drug is in the system longer. The longer it stays in the system, the less anxiety. With the 'normal' paroxetine the person may have to top it up with anxiolytics (anti anxiety meds like benzodiazepines) which have a tendency to be quite addictive in the longer term. I hope this answered your question somewhat. Answered by Flossie Mans 2 months ago.
The CR normally means that is a controlled release medication, so that the drug level stays constant in your blood. Answered by Carlene Slaten 2 months ago.

Thank Answered by Catarina Cislo 2 months ago.
Paxil is paroxetine HCl. The two medications are bioequivalent, but they are not identical. The inactive salt (HCl or mesylate) is separated when your body metabolizes the medication, and it is the paroxetine that provides the effect. There might be some short term difference depending on if one is absorbed more easily (I don't know if that's the case), but since paroxetine has a half-life of 24 hours (meaning after 24 hours the concentration of the drug in your blood is halved) or more I would expect the long term effects to be just about identical. However, I'm not a doctor... This is what I would be more concerned about when it comes to the substitution: there is currently no generic form of Pexeva available, which means you may end up paying more for this form of paroxetine than you would if your prescription was for Paxil which DOES have a generic version! To combine the last two paragraphs: For your purposes the two drugs are going to do the same thing. For the pharmaceutical company's purposes the two drugs are different enough that the new one (Pexeva) qualifies for a new patent, meaning they can charge brand name money for it without worrying about a generic substitute yet. Tell your doctor you're on to this drug company trickery and get him to switch that script! Effects for depression can take up to a month to be noticeable, and at the point the dosage may need to be adjusted. Your doctor should be monitoring this closely. I don't know anything about the effects on nerve pain, since I have only ever taken it for depression. If you need to stop taking this or any other SSRI you should taper off. Paroxetine has a shorter half life than some other SSRIs and once the level of the medication in your body drops enough there can be a number of withdrawal symptoms. With Paxil I've had this happen by missing just one dose. You should look up SSRI discontinuation syndrome on Google. Answered by Bertha Redfearn 2 months ago.
I've not been pregnant on Paxil but I would do as both your doctors suggest. The warnings on the label and on the internet are the same as the warnings for pregnant women and smoking. Yeah, it's probably best not to smoke while your pregnant, but you could. Anyway, your benefits really do outway the risk in this case. Stay happy and healthy. Get check ups often and talk with your doctors about the baby. Everything should be fine. Or if your still not satisfied and don't trust your doctors you could get a third opinion from another doctor. Good luck! Answered by Emilee Fornaro 2 months ago.

1) Paroxetine is a class of drug called an selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant. SSRI antidepressants mainly affect a neurotransmitter called serotonin in the brain.SSRIs prevent serotonin from being reabsorbed back into the nerve cells in the brain. This helps prolong the mood lightening effect of any released serotonin. It is prescribed to relieve depression and panic disorders. Xanax is a Benzodiazepine. This class of drug works by affecting the way neurotransmitters in the brain transmit messages to certain brain cells. They decrease the excitability of many brain cells, which has a calming effect on the brain. They are prescribed to manage insomnia, anxiety and various other conditions. They are seldom used for anxiety and insomnia nowadays because they are so addictive and one develops tolerance to the drug in a very short space of time. 2) Xanax is highly addictive and as I explained above, you will develop tolerance to the drug in a short space of time, after which time the drug is practically worthless. Paroxetine can also cause withdrawal if stopped suddenly 3) Xanax has a short licence of 2-4 weeks for the reasons I stated above. It's usually prescribed very short term. Paroxetine can be taken indefinitely 4) Yes you need to taper down the dose over a 2-3 week period. 5) Not really no, this combination should be avoided because if taken together it can increase the CNS and/or respiratory-depressant effects o the drug. 6) Yes as I mentioned above and Xanax is highly addictive too, that's the main problem. Answered by Vonnie Swainston 2 months ago.
Paroxetine (Paxil) is an SSRI, Xanax is a benzodiazepine. They work on different receptors and have different side effects. SSRIs are antidepressants (but also used in conditions like OCD, anxiety, etc), they are considered relatively safe among the antidepressants although there are some side effects. THey are not considered to be addictive at all, although you have to take them for a few weeks before the effect kicks in, and you have to slowly come off them otherwise you will have withdrawal symptoms (feeling sick, feeling sad). You can stay on them for a while. One well-known side effect is decreased sex drive. Benzodiazepines are sedatives, they make you sleepy and calm you down. They can be addictive but under medical supervision they should be okay. They are a little more dangerous if you accidentally take too many, you can slow your breathing down so much that you die. They make you drowsy. You can take both at the same time since they work on different receptors and with different mechanisms. Answered by Albert Rouhoff 2 months ago.
Xanax And Paxil Answered by Felecia Bodon 2 months ago.
Well for starters Atheists are not very well organized, but they are getting there. They simply don't believe in God or a high spirtual being that isn't man. They do have books and spirtual leaders, such as Richard Dawkins. Their main objective is defeating religious exclusion, religious exhibits in public and removing religion completely from schools, government offices and public places. One of their heavy goals is elemination of Christmas as a National Holiday in many countries of the world. As for why Christianity is split up, it's because various groups or sects of the religion hold different views on things. Baptists, for example, believe only in adult baptism in water, not childhood baptism. All the others you mention, except maybe Mormons, believe in Childhood baptism or christening, usually in the first 6 months after birth. Baptists are, basically, new agers. While they base their views on John the Baptist, they are not a decendent of his practise or faith (he was in a Jewish regiion of the world). They are also not the same as the Anabaptists that came over from Europe in 1600 Baptists are a more modern religion splinted into Nothern, Southern White and Black. They're services are often less formal. Their music is often more contemporary and done with modern instruments. They are very vocal and do things spontaniously. Music is very much an integral part of their services and all get involved. Catholic Presbyterian, Lutheran and Methodists are mainstream, old school. Catholics date back 2000 years. The rest date back 500 years. Lutherans were the first off shoot from CAtholics, the Presbyeterians and Methodists came about starting in American in teh late 1600s to early 1700. They often use traidition organ music, a nominal sermon give by the minister or preist, they sing hyms. They stand on cue, they sit on cue, they pray on cue. Catholics have FAR more rituals and also hold the Virgin Mary and Saints in high regard. They kneel a lot durring services make the sign of the cross and have very fixed rituals which everyone knows about. Mormons are another group of new agers they are part Christain and also hold modern day phrophets from their church in high respect. They don't do cafeen (coffe, coke, pepsi), drugs, smoke or drink. There are splintered into two varients, one of which beleives in multiple marraiges (polygamy) which they agreed, formally, not to allow in America. Answered by Eleanora Delhierro 2 months ago.
Paroxetine tablets, suspension (liquid), and extended-release (long-acting) tablets are used to treat depression, panic disorder (sudden, unexpected attacks of extreme fear and worry about these attacks), and social anxiety disorder (extreme fear of interacting with others or performing in front of others that interferes with normal life). Paroxetine tablets and suspension are also used to treat obsessive-compulsive disorder (bothersome thoughts that won't go away and the need to perform certain actions over and over), generalized anxiety disorder (GAD; excessive worrying that is difficult to control), and posttraumatic stress disorder (disturbing psychological symptoms that develop after a frightening experience). Paroxetine extended-release tablets are also used to treat premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD, physical and psychological symptoms that occur before the onset of the menstrual period each month). Paroxetine is in a class of medications called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). It works by increasing the amount of serotonin, a natural substance in the brain that helps maintain mental balance. Alprazolam is used to treat anxiety disorders and panic attacks. Alprazolam is in a class of medications called benzodiazepines. It works by decreasing abnormal excitement in the brain.

Different people have different experiences with Paroxetine & this is only my experience of how i was, what i felt like when first starting on Paroxetine & how i am now. Before, i couldn't sleep properly at all & in fact i cried myself to sleep many's a night. I'd very little energy during the day & felt completely disorientated at times too. Mentally, i felt like i was staring through a haze at the world & my concentration was very poor. I was also obsessive about things. At times i also had to fight of suicidal thoughts & urges that felt like they weren't even my own. Once i started taking Paroxetine, almost immediately my concentration began to get better & i could focus on something that i once enjoyed. I did feel shaky at first & my appetite went downhill, but these side effects soon lifted once my body got used to the drug. My sleep came back too & slowly the mental haze lifted. The obsessions left too & my energy got better. All in all, i slowly but surely started feeling better & i haven't been plagued by suicidal thoughts or feelings since.

Question about Paroxetine?
my thyroids r soooo bad it made me again 100lbs in 5months... so now im overweight.... 320
Asked by Delfina Gobel 2 months ago.
Paroxetine is an anti-depressant, which is often used for other conditions such as panic, anxiety, OCD, and habit disorders. It works by elevating the level of serotonin in your body. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter which is in high concentrations in your brain, your digestive system, and your sexual system. One of the more common side effects is stimulation of appetite with possible weight gain. The most important thing you should do is work with your physician and/or specialist to correct or treat your thyroid disorder. If your doctor(s) feel you need a serotonin medication to help, I would suggest Prozac, Zoloft, or Celexa, none of which stimulate appetite. Gaining as much weight as you have over such a short period of time can be extremely dangerous to your heart, lungs and other organs, and can increase your chances of developing weight-dependent diabetes. It sounds like you have a rough road ahead, but with proper care you should do well. Good luck. Answered by Xiomara Bachan 2 months ago.

Answered by Marylee Mirabile 2 months ago.
Paroxetine is an SSRI, and this class of drugs takes ~2 weeks to become effective against anxiety. Go ahead and start it, but don't expect it to have an effect tomorrow. Hydroxyzine (prn?) is an antihistamine with anxiolytic properties (kind of like benedril), and it has rapid effects, which should be short lived. I believe that Hydroxyzine is prescribed prn (as needed), meaning that you should take it in situations when you are feeling especially anxious, but not otherwise. I looked it up in a medical reference and increased anxiety is not one of the side effects, so I wouldn't worry about that at all. I would however caution you that it may have the opposite effect and make you feel drowsy, apathetic, and possibly a little drunk. If you have never taken a rapidly acting anxiolytics (valium, xanex, klonapin, etc.) before, I would not suggest taking this one for the first time before your first day of school. Instead try some relaxation exercises in the morning, then try the hydroxyzine when you get home to see how you react to it. If this is contrary to what your doctor told you to do, follow his advise, not mine, I am speaking mostly from personal experience with these types of drugs. Answered by Theresa Perlman 2 months ago.

I got prescribed paroxetine too a long time ago but i also drank alcohol with it, so it didn't have much effect because i didn't give it time to build up in my system. However, when i completely stopped drinking, i started taking the paroxetine again & slowly but surely it began to work. It took a number of weeks before i noticed any real difference but i did when i gave it time to work. My concentration on things started getting better, the spells of disorientation & 'other worldliness' stopped happening, i was able to sleep properly & comfortably again & all in all, my thoughts became my own again. I was no longer suicidally depressed & my social anxiety got better. I began to smile & feel happy again about myself. I began to put on a bit of much needed weight too because my appetite got better too. Yep, i can say hand on heart, taking paroxetine helped me in a lot of ways. I still take it & will continue to take it til my doctor tells me its time to come off it, which will happen by slowly reducing my daily dose over a number of weeks til i can do without it.
