: : - I'm over-analizing everything at times/unstoppable thoughts, which is really freaking me outs.
: : - I'm afraid Paxil will change my personality and do things I wouldn't do normally. I'm usually shy/introvert, but since I take the drug I have been "extroverted". I know I should be happy with this change, but the fact that this is due to the drug and not to my own will, scares me a little ... it just doesn't feel like "me".
: : - I have the feeling that I have to rediscover everything:
: : Can anyone relate to these thoughts? Thanx for any help and best wishes to anyone ...

: Hi there Winter. Glad to have you aboard and you might find some great ideas here. Do you have a psychiatrist or MD that knows about your depression. This is the first step. then dont underplay it, Make sure the MD knows you want some action. And also say you want to start with a half or a third of normal... Everytime they start at an overdose with me, then Im suffering with agonizing side effects. I want something subtile, and I dont want a major personality change either like you ....And always try to have a good social life, movies, restaurants etc. It helps you feel part of society and get to see alll those "euphoric" people running around, having a great time! Please write again and get better quickly ok?
I am already seeing a psychiatrist and I'm already on 20mg of Paxil and 1mg of Risperidal ... it's just the thoughts and obsessions caused by the depression that are freaking me out, altough those got better with the prescribed drugs. I'm a little in a down again right now, but I know that the way to feeling better is trough ups and downs. I guess I'm being impatient...
Anyhow, thanks for your support
