Common Questions and Answers about Paxil and melatonin


I usually watch a little tv, read a book, then get sleepy, light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> fall asleep. It really helped me, light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> I take it every now light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> then. It is natural light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> not habit forming, which I really like.
You can go back on it le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and taper off more slowly le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and see if that helps, or you could try taking light>melatoninlight> light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> natural relaxants such as valerian or homeopathic remedies light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> see if it helps. Do you exercise? Have you tried taking fish oil?
I use melatonin with Celexa le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and have used it with light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxillight> light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> lexapro, light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> haven't had a problem, nor have I heard of any problems with light>melatoninlight>.

I read up about both but am wondering if weight gain is a problem with zoloft. As for light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxillight> i gained over 25 pounds light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> now Im trying to lose it light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> it sure isnt easy. I found out you don't take zoloft at night but le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxil you do. I have got to lose this weight.
To anyone who has not started taking light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxillight> I would tell you not to light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> to try a seratonin light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> light>melatoninlight> natural alternative. light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> to anyone who is about to stop taking le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxil I will say good luck le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and to try your best to stay off it forever.

try out light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxillight> for yourself for a year or 2 light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> then stop taking it.

This is a dangerous drug that has many side effects le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and many MANY more withdrawal symptoms. You might as well be on heroin le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and try to get off. If I could go back, I would have never gotten on le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxil. It helped with panic attacks but gave me about 30 other problems. So to sum up....
Since both le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxil le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and prozac are SSRIs, you are probably okay taking both. Make sure you do a web search for prozac light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxillight> light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> look at drug interaction precautions.

For me, it helps me fall asleep after light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxillight> withdrawal ruined my life, light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> nothing else has been able to do that, but staying asleep is difficult because my schedule is very off -- it works better if you're on a schedule that is natural to you, because melatonin sets your body clock le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and it's hard to do that if you're off whatever body clock is natural to you (not everyone is suited to getting up early le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and going to bed early -- people differ).
Nickles66 - I had to stop the Melatonin experiment after about a week as my depression got worse, I had to taper off from Seroxat (le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxil) in order to take the Melatonin but my anger/frustration/anxiety etc came back with a vengence le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and so I was reluctant to take both le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxil an SSRI le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and Melatonin, it may just be okay but don't want to risk it.
I was on light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxillight> 5 years ago for divorce anxiety light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> tapered off slowly light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> it was fine. I just started it again because of general anxiety issues. I have just taken it 5 mg for 5 days then 10 mg for two days then, 5 mg for 1 day, 2.5 mg for 1 day then quit. I am having the worst anxiety. My counselor tells me that this was such a small dose for such a small time I should not be having any reactions, but I cannot pull out of the anxiety.

Keeping the liquid le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxil in the refrigerator worked. Now, after increasing the dose to 5mg, I fell asleep almost immediately, slept ten hours to about 10:45am, but then, however, an hour later, I felt incredibly tired, le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and I literally had to fight myself to stay awake the rest of the day.

Do you live in a state with medical marijuana? I live in CA, le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and have a prescription for cannabis. It helps with sleep, le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and relieves pain. It is obtained in a dispensary. If you have attachment to the cannabis "high", I might consider other options.

like I said, I am a lightweight light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> I am allergic to coedine light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> morpheine. Quite simply, they both cause me to stop breathing light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> I've had two surgeries that I've had to recouperate with only Motrin for pain. But that is ok - I like breathing better ! lOl ! So anyone - any herbal anti-anxiety vitamins that can be recommended ? I've done well with Melatonin for insomnia so I'll use that after stopping the xanex. I've never heard of Vistaril - any side effects ? Thank you so much again !
I know my husble = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and was depressed by the fatigue, inability to work light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> just plain sick of being sick. Zoloft light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andlight> light>le = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>paxillight> are a couple of the meds I've seen people here taking. For joint pain he should be able to take Ibuprophen which is what I've seen recommended by doctors on several HCV related websites.
