Discussions that mention paxil

Panic Disorders board


Sickman,

I am truly amazed by your courage to help others. Most people would of given up long ago. I thank you for telling your story. I was just curious which SSRI you were on that caused this. I understand you want to keep that to yourself. I also know a lot of doctors try to say that we have these panic attacks because of something traumatic that happened in our childhood. I, like you, had a happy childhood too. I still think for me, it was a combination of medications I was on or not taking that Paxil on the 4th day. The doctors of course would say that there was no way I could have a withdrawal after the 4th day. I'm not sure what to think anymore. I am just trying to recover. I hate depending on medication to make me better, but I guess that's the breaks for now.

I wish you all the happiness and may God bless you and heal you:)

Dear Chantel2003,
I will tell you what srri I was on so no one else makes the same mistake. It was Serzone, and I had been on a constant dosage three times a day for over 4 years. The psych told me to drop off in three days. I knew this was bs so I took 3 weeks and it still got me. Serzone is a heavy duty seritonin drug and is currently black labeled for liver problems. I test clean though for this. I was disabled over thirty years ago and this is where the PTSD comes in. Althogh I had injuries and illnesses that they could not diagnose, I refused to be disabled and worked sick for a lot of the time. These were actual physical illnesses and they changed over the years as panic disorder does. I then finally did get panic disorder and about 4 years later the Serzone episode disabled me from working at all. I still refuse to be disabled. I keep going because I have faith that there is a purpose in all of this and there is work that still must be done, only it is of a different nature. I just hope to have enough time to see my youngest son's children and that my wife gets in better health. I hope that this second generation beyond me can change the world into a peaceful place to live and bring back hope to the world. I have faith in God althoght I have never learned to worship as society dictates. I would hope that God is guiding me at this time and I am doing what he would want me to do. Not trying to preach any specific religion, only wish that people would learn to have faith, it seems to be lost. I believe there is still a little hope left and if I can make a difference then I have done the best I can. I may be disabled and I would like to be well, but I don't want to be the person that I was years ago. Not that I was bad or anything, I just had my eyes closed to so many things. You as well as the others on this board have made a difference in my life and an re-enforcement to continue on, so we are all doing are own little part. Better call it enough or this post will run out of room. Thank you for your concern and have a good one.

Sincerely,

Sickman :)
