    Sameer,

    I use to have this problem when I my anxiety was real bad. You think you are having a shortness of breath but it is actually the complete opposite. Your brain actually has to much oxygen. The best thing to do is control your breathin and practice breathing techniques.

    Hi I'm on day 3 of seroxat 10mg, I came off Sert last week as I felt awful, I'm still not feeling too good, I'm always breathing like that but I just think it's the brain trying to get oxygen, are you feeling any better for the seroxat and how is your sleeping? I haven't slept well in weeks where I usually sleep like a log! Iv been told it will all settle down soon??

      Glad you are feeling a lot better though, I'm praying for the days to pass by to start feeling good again! I'm dreading the night but feel like I could sleep for a week! Think I'll be going up to 20mg when I go back to the docs, I may even start putting it up by taking a quarter more so hopfully not see the side effects as much! Had bad acid today!

    Hello I had very strange side effects and had to stop seroxat.    With anti depressants we do feel worse before we feel better as the drug gets into our system.  Give it a few more weeks and see how   you go. 

    It is a good thing to take deep breaths.  A lot of postings about anxiety say take good deep breaths to calm down.  I think you are just getting initial effects.
