You hae to do what you need to do,and if that means taking a bit more of the paxil then so be it....wean slowly and the end will come,where you wont have to take it anymore...when my brothe was on Luvox,it took him a year to get off of it,he had to spend three months at a time,slowly weaning himself dose by dose,until he got off of it,he said it usually takes as much time to wean off a med,as much time as you were on it...Give yourself some time to adjust...

: Well I will tell you one thing. When I first read all the responses to their own problems with withdrawel side-affects, I must admit I thought they were exaggerated. I am sorry for that. I am now dealing with a less than fun situation myself. I made an emergnecy call to my doctor today. I was up till 5 am last night with FEAR. Almost panics. I Havent felt that way in almost a year. Anyway my doctor told me to jump back up to 20mg IMMEDIATELY and I am to go in and see him tomorrow. I think the 10/mg every other day is too much for me right now. I went from 20mg/dat to 10/mg every day only t weeks ago and now this is the end of my first week of taking 10mg every other day. It has been a very difficult 3 days. The funny thing is today after talking to my doc and taking the extra 10mg to get back to 20mg it didnt take very long to start feeling better. The electrical feelings are almost gon ecompletely. I cant believe taking that 10mg had such a quick affect. Still have some anxiety. Just took 2mg of Klonopin to get me thru the night. The 1mg Ativan did NOTHING last night and I was stuck in the Araneum Nortstrum Anxiety chat room all night. If you all have not heard of this organization it is very good. Search for it under yahoo. They have a 24/7 chat room where there are usually people in there at all times.

: Well I thought this was going to be easy but I guess not.
