Hi Mel.

Was wondering how you are doing on the paroxetine, the other site for this med is very quiet.

I took my 1st this morning and have felt fine, a bit more tired but thats all.

Thanks

Danielle.

    Hi Danielle

    I am doing brill on them :D I take mine (20mg) in the mornings. I am experiencing some head sweats and appetite is too good lol but that is all.

    I'm certainly not in any rush to come off them although I did try a few weeks back until I felt myself slipping again so went back on them.

    I hope they work as well for you as they are for me.

    I'm able to laugh, feel happy, lark about again and have all the patience in the world for all my family and friends without any agitation what so ever. I can even go off out shopping alone and feel no anxiety at all.

    Good luck and do please keep posting of your progress.

    Hi Mel,

    I remember the head sweats last time I was on them many years ago. Only on day 4, but what Im finding is that I get that nice chilled out feeling, no anxiety until around mid afternoon, then the anxiety seems to return. I am also taking 20mg each morning, its like the effect has wears off, did this happen to you when you 1st started on paroxetine. Im hoping once it is fully in my system the feel good feeling will stay.

    Best Wishes

    Danielle.

    Hi Danielle

    Ye, until they kicked in, I do recall phases of anxiety setting in but now I don't have any. In fact my granddaughter (8 months old) was rushed into hospital late last night (is okay now) and I seemed to take it all in my stride, phoning the ambulance etc. Of course, I still felt the worry and concern but the anxiety was almost zilch! :shock:

    Also, once I have overcome the difficulty in waking up in a morning and dragging myself out of bed (no matter how much or little sleep I have had) I am bursting with energy all day, and well into the evening. :roll:

    I'm on a course tomorrow, wondering how I will be then, having to sit in a warm lecture room all day listening :shock: Fingers crossed I don't zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz! :oops: :oops: :oops:

    Finger crossed for you that the tablets soon get into your system and settle things down.
