Angry Attn: Any Ex Or Current Seroxat/paroxetine Users!

[B]: I would love to hear from anyone who in using the antidepressant Seroxat/Paroxetine has experienced any unusual, what can only be described as severe 'dizzy/electric shock like' & 'off balance' symptons. In my research on the internet I have only so far come accross these affects during withdrawel or missed dosage(s) of the drug. My own dosage of this drug was significantly increased from 20 mg/once daily to 50 mg/once daily in the beginning of February this year after suffering a 'breakdown' which involved self harm from suicidal tendancies. For months now I have been experiencing this awful symptons which seemed to be an inner ear problem as there were symptons also in this area of 'pressure', a blocked feeling, sensitivity and mild bouts of earache. After several remedies where unsuccessful I was sent to an ENT specialist who upon examination was not convinced that the severe aforementioned symptons where the cause of the inner ear and that the ear symptons seemed to be isolated. As a result I was referred for a brain scan and x-rays of the neck/top of spine vetbrae. Having seen my Doctor yesterday it was a relief (at least) to know that these tests had come back 'normal'. As such I was told that I am left with two disorders as the cause - one or both. A dysfuntion in the vascular system which supplies blood supply to the brain - which is the usual cause of migraines of which I have to take treatment for, to try and prevent the onsent of one, or if that fails, then to at least lessen the degree of one. Even so, the treatment doesn't always produce the desired affect and I can still suffer from a migraine at odd times from between days to a week, although less frequently than before the treatment. As I do a lot of research on the internet regarding any health issues I had, my doctor suggested that I look up 'Serotonergic Syndrome', as a cause of my symptons........... due to the high dosage of the antidepressant, the timing of when the symptons kicked in and the fact that it is in use with a migraine inhibator. The likely suggestion being that the symptons are a result of the combination of the two. However, having looked this disorder up on the internet, I have yet to find my 'head' symptons listed. Therefore, can anyone out there relate to what I am experiencing?
