Before starting Paxil I suffered from blackouts quite often. I have panic disorder and I believe that's what mine was caused from. I would be in the middle of a conversation and forget what was said. Once I even made a phone call and had no recollection of it at all. If this is a possibility you should look into it. I know it can be very scarey, but no one has ever said they can tell a difference in the way I act. Good luck and please keep us posted.
