I am currently weaning off Paroxetine
(Paxil) and the withdrawal symtoms are taking over my entire day and I can't function properly. I am having "hot flashes" on my neck and earlobs (It's not a menopause thing, I'm 35 years old), I am having vision problems (focusing), racing heart beats, electric shock sensations, vertigo and mind flashes. This is like being tortured!!!! I am going off the medication so I can try Effexor.
