I take paxil and the thing is I have no energy. I mean I sleep constantly. Does anyone else take this or anything similar. I would like to stop taking because I think I can get my anxiety controlled but I am damn afraid of my depression.

How bad is your withdrawl and what happens? My doctor wants me to start slowly get off it now. When you were first starting it did you get real fatiqued cause of it?

I had taken paxil for about a year, totally stopped me from freaking out on my "waste of skin" school project members :mad: . I never had with-drawl when I went off of it, I only got a weird buzzing in my head when I moved my head up and down :p , but after a week it stopped. I don't know about the sleeping part(never really did that for me), but my GF was on it at one point and was sleeping like crazy. You should try a different kind, you need to find one that works best for you. Anti depressants do different stuff to different people. Effixor(sp?) is great for anxiety, and my GF no longer has sleepy side effects since switching, they are Horse pills though.

My withdrawl was horrible. I couldnt go to work, I curled up in a ball in my room and was just a miserable, yelling mess. I had to get back on the shit that day or I was going to kill myself. I couldnt move my head/eyes without getting shocked, I was extremely pissed off, and dizzy/nauseas.

And yeah, it did make me tired for a while at first. I guess I'm just used to being tired alot.

Thanks a lot guys. How many milligrams are/were you on. I'm on 25 right now and I am going to go down to 12 1/2. I was at one point up to 37 1/2 but I couldn't bust a nut.

25 mg here. And yes, it has its downsides, Paxil is also used sometimes for premature ejaculation...it can make it hard to get/stay aroused sometimes. Ive had that happen before, once with a woman! (I got so pissed, that it was almost impossible for me to even get back on track).
