The last drug she was on, neurontin, had such awful side effects
that she discontinued it, I believe cold turkey. I myself took small doses of paxil (about 5 mgs) after she died to help me cope, as well as had therapy. Paxil did help me sleep and stabilize. After several months, however, I noticed emotional blunting, lethargy, and unresponsiveness. I went off the drug cold turkey. I would not advise it under any circumstances. My moods plummetted or rocketed/raced up.
