I started on paxil 2 months ago.I think because all the bad side effects especialy weight gain my bulimia is back.Also my drinking has seemed to increase.The urge is somehow stronger.I drink 3 gin and tonics a day,two shots of gin in each.The good news is I am in control of my emotions again.No suicidal thoughts which were daily and sweating all night and heart beating so fast I felt it would explode out of my chest.Also the obsesssive crazy thoghts are way turned down.I know I'm headed for trouble with the drinking,does anyone else have these problems,I know I cannot get off these pills because of all the things that are happening in my life now.I refuse to become that person who took all those pills to die,and spent days curled up in a ball.Thank you for listening.
is the paxil reducing your anxiety? it should be working by now but occasionally never works, the dose may need upping
anyhow with paxil reducing your anxiety, you shouldnt need to drink so much
try to get some exercise as it relaxes and calms you, take long walks
