whenever I run out of paxil and don't take it for a day or two, I get these very miserable withdrawl symptoms, such as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hot</span>/cold <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flashes</span>, 2 second dizzy spells, loss of energy, and sleepiness. Why does this happen? And, if I ever do get off of paxil, will these withdrawl syptoms stay with me for life?
he quit chemo it made him too sick. he is now suffering from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hot</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flashes</span> and they are wondering what can be used naturally to help with that. i know evening primrose oil has helped menopausal hot flashes in women, but what about men? thank you.
The best person to help you may be your (ob), I still take evening primrose oil this does help with my moods, I also exercise when i exercise i have found that this has kept the edge off and also helped with the nights sweats, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hot</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flashes</span> due to medical problems i am having at this time i can not exercise and i notice everything i worked so hard to get rid of is back, Good luck to you Take care sunny
These periods last 6-8 weeks and then the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hot</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flashes</span> reduce in intensity and occurance gradually over the next 10 weeks. Then, unfortunately, they start again. I am currently in my 3rd cycle of this pattern. I haven't had a period since November 2005. My GYN has done blood tests - I'm definately menopausal. I am not taking HRT. I am taking herbs - I can't tell if they're helping or not. I eat healthy food - no meat - lots of vegies. I exercise a lot.
I weaned down to 10 mg for a couple of weeks and then off and didn't have a problem. However, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxil</span> never did help my anxiety (only worked on depression for me). Several people I know of have had no problem with weaning off of it. However, I purposely did not read any websites because I am susceptible to suggestion so if I had read any withdrawal symptoms, I might have suffered them myself.
diarrhea, sweating, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hot</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flashes</span>, anxiety, nervousness, nausea, electric shocks in my head, trouble sleeping and just an over-all uneasy and uncomfortable feeling. My father is 71 years old and is on Zoloft and has been taking it for years and I am considering switching to Zoloft, overnight, hopefully starting tonight. My father also said the only side effect he had when he started taking the Zoloft, was a dry mouth.
I think I starting having problems before the end of the first month. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hot</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flashes</span> hit first and then we noticed my mood swings. We had an appt with doc about a month or so into taking Tamoxifen. He prescribed Effexor to fix it all. I will tell you that I did that I did not realize you were supposed to take Tamoxifen with food and my onc suggested I take it with breakfast. I was taking it at night before bedtime when I usually take my vitamins. Ooops!!!!
Please understand that you will most likely experience severe withdrawals from paxil.

How hard has it been for you to wean yourself from paxil? It's as agonizing as coming off of heroin..and shares most of the same symptoms and long term effects!
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.
I was prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxil</span> for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hot</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flashes</span> almost a year. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hot</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flashes</span> stopped but the weight gain started. I have gained 30 pounds in less than 10 months (which I HATE) and my sex drive is almost nonexistant! I have never been this size (not even when I was pregnant)! So, needless to say, I decided I would just stop taking it all at once (about 3 weeks ago).
I thought I would add in my own experience as I am still in it. About a week ago, I went off paxil, which was prescribed by my psychaitrist for my motor tourettes symptomology. I don't experience depression, but I guessed having extra insurance against it couldn't hurt as a bonus when he described it to me. Well, I got a moderate case of the flu about 5 days ago. A couple of days prior, I was thinking about going off the 10 mg. that I was on and didn't take them for two days.

5 MG Sat - None Sun - None Although today the side effects are milder, I am still experiencing a strange sensation in my head like a weight in my head and I am getting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hot</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flashes</span> and some nausea. I can not believe two pills can have this effect. Wish I never tried this junk. Like I said, I have always been sensitive to medication even things like cough syrup.
I feel so much freaking better as a person, i'm actually calling my friends, attempting to hang out with people, doing art and all sorts of things i stopped doing months after first being on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxil</span>. I've had the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hot</span>/cold <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flashes</span>, vertigo, and the puking. Now all i'm left with is the not being able to find the right words, spaciong out, and the one which i freaking hate... breaking out into tears. So far no zaps (knock on wood), but the crying for no reason is what's affecting me at work.
5 mg? I have been taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxil</span> for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hot</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flashes</span>. I am not taking for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxil</span> for depression. Will have a harder time getting off paxil? I have gained weight I am exercising twice a day and I can not budge the weight.
Although paxil is a good drug for some patients I really think doctors should try other SSRI's first and use <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxil</span> as a later resort.
Is there any help out there to deal with this? I have been taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxil</span> for seven years and gained 40 lbs.
I am taking Effexor XR and it has been a lifesaver for me. I am on Arimidex and was having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hot</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flashes</span> and was depressed after breast cancer treatment. I had been on it before and stopped taking it without any problem. I know everybody is different. It sure helped me!!!

I felt like a zombie and almost felt my anxiety comin back once i started thinking more about how the medicine made me feel. I have pressure in the back of my head as well as cold <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flashes</span> in the am and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hot</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flashes</span> in the pm. Ive never been on anti deprssents before this. I had to take a xanax today to calm me down and i still feel so drained. Is this normal? I dont think i can handle this medicine. Any adivce???
I'm still taking prozac. I stopped a while and those <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hot</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flashes</span> returned. Therefore, I'm going to continue to take prozac. I'm taking 20mg and doing great.
Yes, it could be some withdrawal from the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxil</span>. I went through a little bit of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hot</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flashes</span> when I weaning off it and I'm long past menopause.
also the most annoying part is the 'surges' of heat when i feel i am upset or irritated by something. it's like menopause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hot</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flashes</span> but i've been past that for years. oh well...i'm going with the answer being - all things good are hard and i'm sticking with this. i do notice i am 'feeling' again. something like a veil being taken off...or a layer of skin peeled. i feel more awake and more aware. but i wasn't aware of losing it. onward and upward.

Given the problems associated with the various meds, I'd probably try Prozac first, Lexapro second, then Zoloft, then Celexa, and man, I'd wait on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxil</span> for last resort. But from my years of going through this, shrinks seem to think Zoloft is the best for anxiety.
Call your doctor about the side effects and see your OB-GYN to rule out other causes for the bleeding and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hot</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flashes</span> (they can be a symptom of things other than menopause). Hope this helps and take care.
