I've been diagnosed with SAD and been on Paxil for about a year. It seems to be working great, but for some reason, I'm always paranoid and obsessive right before I start my period. I used to be cranky, but now I'm right back to how I was without meds- hating talking to people, feeling like everyone is staring at me...I actually tried to cover my face up driving home today! Does anyone else suffer from a relapse during this time? I talked to my doctor and he just told me to split my pill in half and take 1 and 1/2 pills during that week. I hate adjusting my meds like that. I'm on 37.5 now. Please let me know if I'm the only one!
