PAXIL: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Anxiety and Stress “I’m writing this because I was initially scared to start taking Paxil after reading a lot of negative reviews online, and I wanted to put a positive one out there. I’m currently on week 6 day 2, on a 10mg dose (I’m a small female). When I started, I had gone over a month barely eating or sleeping, and had lost over 15 pounds in the previous few months due to anxiety/depression. I was struggling with every aspect of my life, and felt like I didn’t have the strength to pull myself through it. Today I feel strong, capable, I have my appetite back and my sleep has improved. I am back to my real joyful self and not just a shell of a person. The only side effects I have experienced are exhaustion in the first few weeks, and some jaw clenching at night. All manageable.So, if you’re considering Paxil, don’t be scared by all the info out there. Every body is different, and you never know: it might be just what you need to help you through this time in your life and find yourself.”

For Major Depressive Disorder “I originally started at 20mg. This dose was too much and had trouble sleeping. I went down to 10mg which is working much better for me. Unfortunately, I am experiencing blood taste in my post nasal drip. I have excellent oral hygiene and this is not coming from my mouth. It is definitely the throat. Not sure if anyone else has experienced this? The medication is working but this side effect is gross.”

For Social Anxiety Disorder “I have been on Paxil for a little over a month now. Taking 20mg for Social Anxiety. It has helped me tremendously. From feeling more positive to my thoughts being less overwhelming and much more easy to ignore. Especially in times in the winter (when my anxiety is much worse) it has helped to take the edge off. I feel like I am starting to be myself like I was before the SA took over. Would def recommend.”

For Postmenopausal Symptoms “I have been on 10 mg of the generic of Paxil for post menopausal symptoms for 2 months and I have noticed significant improvement in my conditions. My sex drive as of today, is not effected, however it takes more time to reach orgasm. I’ve stopped stressing out severely and only have controlled concern over what I would have considered upsetting matters. My anxiety/panic attacks used to last for days and I felt as if I lost myself….Those horrible feelings are now gone. My hot flashes have lessened and I sleep much better. My personality has not changed in a negative way, in fact, I am more pleasant to be around. I used to yell at my kids and husband every weekend, so I’m thinking I should have started taking this medicine a long time ago”
