I have suffered from PAs and anxiety for some 12 years, and for the past 6+ they've been under control -- pretty much -- thanks to Xanax and Paxil. However, my doctor just weaned me off Paxil to start Wellbutrin. Took one yesterday, and was up vomitting all night, had shakes, sweats and a monster headache. It scared the hell out of me. Part of my anxiety includes an unhealthy fear of pills -- so unhealthy, in fact, that while pregnant with my second child, I refused to take prenatal vitamins. I thought they might cause some sort of reaction. Sounds crazy, and it is. But sometimes I think I am. I'm a well-educated professional, and I should know better. My doctor now wants me to try Zoloft or Effexor, but I'm afraid, as usual. The Wellbutrin was prescribed to help me stop smoking and, hopefully, improve my sex drive. But I'm thinking I should stick with the Paxil, however, I hear it may soon be taken off the market. Anyone else with fear of pills? The only one I'm not afraid of is Xanax, it's the only one I can rely on. I take .50 mg up to four times a day and have for six years. I'm one of the lucky ones who has a doctor willing to prescribe it, given it's addictive properties. But I don't care about being addicted -- it's better than suffering with PAs. Back to my main question, can anyone offer any advice?
