Time to switch meds?
When I was 19 years old, a psychiatrist at the college I was attending prescribed me 40 mg of Paroxetine or Paxil. Part of the reason I was prescribed the medicine was because I'm a head banger. That means if I get anxious, I start head banging because the pain distracts me. After several years of not head banging, I've been thinking about doing it again. The smallest things have been setting me off too for example, I couldn't find my dog in the house and I thought about head banging. Luckily he was hiding behind our dining room table. Anyway I'm starting school in the Fall and I'm wondering if worrying about school is setting me off and I'm wondering if I should switch meds either go onto a higher dose or just switch meds entirely.
