I’d been on 20mg Paxil for a year. I had a hell year with changes at work but Paxil made it bearable. That bad patch is over now and as my libido suffered which is very unlike me so I decided to withdraw for the sake of my marriage. I’m in my 6th week. For the first 3-4 weeks I was getting strange brain zaps almost every time I moved my head, the odd mood swing and some dizzyness. I also burst in to tears for the first time in a very long time watching a sad movie, much to the kids amusement... and then concern LOL…. Thankfully my wife understands the mood swings and I’m coping with the rest by eating healthily and going to the gym (something I used to do regularly but ceased when I started on Paxil for some reason.) I didn't realise until I stopped that it was dominating me and making me less passionate about the things I love. My doctor has prescribed me with Zoloft but I've decided to have a break and see how I go. Good luck everyone.
