So....I saw my doctor this morning, and she has suggested I try a low dose (7.5mg/day) of paroxetine (generic of Paxil)....I've read about a billion horror stories from people who took this drug....has anyone had good luck with it? Specifically, at this low dose? I left the doctor's office telling myself that I was just going to give it a try without Googling the side effects, but that lasted about twenty minutes...now I'm staring at the pill, terrified to take it because of everything I just read. This is the third SSRI I've tried to take in the last eighteen months, and I always get myself totally freaked out before I take the first dose, imagining all of the horrible things that could happen, and then (surprise) I end up having a bad reaction (likely due, at least in part, to my own thoughts)...ugh!!!!
I'd love to hear from anyone who had (or is having) a good experience....no nightmare stories, please
