: I suffer from severe anxiety and panic attacks. I have been on Paxil for 2 years and am switching to Serzone because I've gained 25 pounds on Paxil. I'd appreciate any input from people who've used SERZONE?

AMY,
I WAS ON SERZONE FOR ABOUT A YEAR AND MY ANXIETY PROBLEMS BECAME WORSE. ( SUFFER FROM AN OBSESSION OF MY SKIPPED HEART BEAT AND ALL OF THE SIDE AFFECTS OF THAT. IT'S LIKE A SNOW BALL, NEVER ENDING...SKIPPED HEART BEAT, TERRIFED FEELING,MORE ABNORMAL BEATS, SWEATS, NUMBNESS ALL OVER..ETC...
MY PSYCHIATRIST CHANGED ME TO PAXIL AND I WAS ON THIS FOR 2YRS. I BELIEVED IT DID HELP WITH THE OBSESSION BUT IT TOOK ALL FEELING AWAY FROM ME AND I WAS THROWN INTO A DEPRESSION (AND WEIGHT GAIN). BY THE WAY, SOME OF MY WEIGHT HAS COME OFF. HE THEN SLOWLY TOOK ME OFF OF PAXIL
(I STILL HAD HORRIBLE WITHDRAWLS) AND I AM NOW ON CELEXA. IT SEEMS TO BE WORKING BUT I STILL DEPEND ON KOLONOPIN FOR DAYS I'M STRUGGLING.
I KNOW MEDICATIONS WORK DIFFERENT ON EVERYONE BUT
FOR ME, I WAS SO DRUGGED AND HAD MORE ANXIETY WITH SERZONE THAN WITHOUT.
I WANT OFF OF EVERYTHING BUT AT 44 I'M SCARED TO DEATH I MIGHT GO BACK TO 3YRS. AGO. (WHEN IT STARTED.
HEY, DID YOU SEE 20/20 LAST NIGHT...THEY WERE TALKING TO ME! SAME SYMTOMS WHEN HE TOOK ME OFF OF PAXIL. I REALLY THOUGHT I WAS JUST GONE OR GOING CRAZY!HA! WHEN SHE SAID SHE USED THE COMPUTER TO FIND OTHERS..I CRIED. I'VE BEEN ON THE COMPUTER ALL MORNING..HA! THERE'S LOTS OF PEOPLE LIKE ME OUT THERE. IT DOES MAKE IT EASIER TO DEAL WITH. I'M NOT CRAZY..WELL NOT TOTALLY.HA!

I BELIEVE IN TRYING EVERYTHING TO HELP GET WELL AND I HAVE ACCEPTED I MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO DO IT MYSELF. WHATEVER IT TAKES IS FINE WITH ME BECAUSE SUFFERING ANXIETY ATTACKS ARE HORRIFYING.
GOOD LUCK SWEETIE AND WRITE ME IF YOU NEED TO TALK.
SHERRI BOEHM
