I'm taking 1/2 tab (10 mg) of Paxil a day and have been for 4 years. Frankly, I'm concerned about the long term effects of SSRI use, so I use as little as possible; just enough to "take the edge off." I'm also on Ativan, the first GP I saw about my problems said I was a nervous wreck and prescribed a month's supply. I find that it definitely relaxes me and removes many of the symptoms, which tends to make me think that I don't have MS. On the other hand, drugs like Ativan and Valium are exactly what docs prescribe to MS sufferers to help reduce muscle cramping, twitches, and pain....so I really don't know what to think anymore!
