      So let me get this straight, your just taking paxil? Do you have manic problems or just depression/ anxiety? What is your official diagnosis? I can help you once i know these things.

Hi Athmildy, I wanted to tell you that I also have vision problems some days worse than others. I will suggest to you that I would not stop or start anything without the doctors orders. This could really mess up your system and could get you hospitalized in order to become stabilized again. I have always been informed of this and as a mental heath therapist also agree with this. I am concerned about you being bipolar and not having at least a mood stabilizer but if you are doing well, maybe the doctor feels at this moment, that you do not require one or a antipsychotic. I would think also about getting a second opinion from another doctor if you are concerned with the med regime you are getting. I hope this gives you some insight. I know I have tried myself to play with my meds and I came close to being hospitalized due to the severe depression. Take care, enpointe

thanks enpointe.......... am still on paxil and i have some xanax left also. it just bothers me that i have to go on another med and get use to how it is going to effect me. i feel so much better and now it is like being back at square one again and i just feel lost. it is like a never ending roller coaster ride. well , i am just drowning in my own dispair. any way i will just have to see what happens now.i am already having p/a attacks just thinking about it

I know exactly how you feel. For me, being alone is something I fear HORRIBLY. I can't stand being home alone when I'm even a tiny bit down and I need to be by a lot of people. It's weird. But hang in there!!!
