Having a fear if medications is quite common, so you're not alone there. Paxil
DOES have quite a reputation when
it comes to worse side
effects and a tougher w/d, although, like lydia said, when done right, it can be tolerable. I wish that NO one would ever research a med before trying it. It's the frantic googling that leads people to give up before they even start, and that's very unfortunate...you could be eliminating an option that could give you miraculous results.
