paroxetine hydrochloride hemihydrate (20mg) for anxiety disorder

My psychiatrist/therapist prescribed Seroxat 20mg for anxiety and depression. Been taking it for 2 years. Once tried to quit, got to 5mgs and started feeling the anxiety again. Came back to 20mgs/a day. It works perfectly for anxiety, not so good for depression. Honestly, I'm afraid of going off them, because I feel like the anxiety will come back. Also don't want to take them forever because o...

paroxetine hydrochloride hemihydrate (30mg) for unpleasant side effect from another medicine

I ended up taking this for 2 years after my GP misdiagnosed undocumented side effects from another drug (tetrazepam) as depression. The tetrazepam was for neck pains and caused people to pass out, although this was not a documented side effect at the time. When this happened to me, my GP assumed depression and prescribed Seroxat. But on topic: Whatever you do, do NOT take Seroxat. This drug is...

paroxetine hydrochloride hemihydrate (10mg) for chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)

Absolutely awful withdrawal problems. Terrible anxiety, thought distortions, suicidal thoughts. Just google how many people can't stop this awful stuff. Don't go near it, should never have been released. Never helped anything either.

paroxetine hydrochloride hemihydrate (20mg) for anxiety & panic disorder

I have used this for 16 years except during my two pregnancies. Was always effective, but for the last few months. Maybe it’s time to stop. Over the years I’ve gained over 55lb and as a result my blood pressure went up, so I need to lose weight. Both times I quit it took me about 10 months to lose the extra weight without any special effort. Now I’m on 4mg in liquid form and already 8lb lighter...

paroxetine hydrochloride hemihydrate (20mg) for anxiety & panic disorder

I started taking this medicine when I was 21 because I was having regular panic and anxiety attacks. They were so bad that in January 2015 I had a panic attack that I couldn't come out of. The doctor prescribed me this medication and in the beginning I didn't have any side effects. I felt good, sometimes still a bit anxious but no real attacks any more. After 1 year I had put on 10 kg despite c...

paroxetine hydrochloride hemihydrate (20mg) for depression

I function brilliantly on 1 x 20 mg a day. Stopped taking it once. Just a few weeks afterwards I noticed a decline in my well-being which gradually got worse so I started back on it. The second time I tried to reduce the dose, I ended up with a zzzz shooting through my head. I'm just going to keep taking it now and I feel good. Shame that I'm overweight from it. Btw: paroxetine is all supposed ...

paroxetine hydrochloride hemihydrate (20mg) for psychological complaints

Since I was about 11 I've been taking medication for psychological problems, what the medicine was called I can't remember. It came from Switzerland in a bottle with a glass dropper and was really expensive. It was prescribed for me by a doctor at the teaching hospital in Leiden.
