: Hello,
: My name is Juliette, and I am a 28 yeas old. I just want to introduce myself, since I just found this message board and have decided that I will want to
: use it for support! :) One thing about being an Anxiety/Panic Attack sufferer is the feeling of being alone and no real support. As much as my family and friends are there for
: me....I would like to hear from those who have the same problem as myself. For one....getting along with taking Paxil! *deep sigh* I started with 10mg's....had slight side effects for a week, then the second week....I felt just fine!! :):)
: Then upped my dose to 20 and had these flashes of intense flu like symptoms. Dr's suggested going back down to the 10mg's and I did this for 6 days and then tried the 20mg again. I was nervous and with nausea (which I've had from the begining of taking the Paxil) and sleeplessness.
: Ontop of having the strangest sensation in my tongue. That was odd. I had enough as of 4 days ago and reduced myself back down to 10mgs. Everything was going just fine until about 2 hrs ago I sat here and had a flash of dizziness, disorientation and had severe chills. After that....I felt like a ticking bomb.
: Waiting for the next see if I was going to have the Anxiety attack of a lifetime.
: I'm just very happy to have found this message board and I will be sure to be posting from time to time and I have put my email addy along with this post so please feel free to email me....please.

: Have a nice day :)
