Discussions that mention paxil

Depression board


Hello everyone.

I'm really not sure where to start. I am feeling absolutely horrible and I don't know why. I am crying for no reason, having millions of thoughts run through my mind but I can't concentrate on any one of them. I'm worrying about things that are out of my control and don't make any sense. I'm having headaches, my stomach hurts. I just don't know what is wrong with me.

I am being treated for generalized anxiety disorder and have been for about 3 or 4 years now. I take paxil once a day. The doc also put me on clonzapem (sp?) to take when I need for anxiety attacks. I have taken the clonzapem this morning but its not working. I'm still crying and worrying and so on.

I took some quizzes online for depression and I have like 9 out of 10 symptoms.

I have so much work to do but I can't concentrate on it long enough to get it done. I just want to lay down and not do anything but I can't even do that because I'm worrying too much.

I need some words of encouragement please.:(
Hey Olliedoll, I had the exact same meds and experience. I was on Paxil for a few yrs along with clonazapam when needed. I went through a major depression, which sounds like you are, and the Paxil did not work so well for that. My doctor tried switching me to Cymbalta but I couldn't take the side affects, so I've been on Lexapro now for 10 days. I think it is starting to work. I was the same way you are, crying and had no spunk or desire to do anything. I even pretty much quit eating but that may have been from other issues I had. Anyway, definately see your doctor about changing meds. I am starting to feel human again. Not joyful or anything like that, but human;)
Best wishes,
JB
