I think it was Saturday night when I was laying in bed and realized I hadnt taken my Paxil that morning, I thought, uh well...it wont matter.
Before I continue on, let it be known that I know how dangerous it can be to discontinue a medication rather than wean off
But, anyways...I had started feeling bad on Saturday, coughing...and then I went outside(huge mistake) because my allergies went CRAZY and I bet I sneezed a few hundred times this weekend! But then around mid-day yesterday I realized I had forgotten to take it that morning as well..And I started feeling worse...
I didnt know the withdrawal symptoms until I looked them up yesterday and then realized that my being sick could be my own fault for accidently missing those doses. btw, I did decide to go and take my medicine rather than to ignore it(good choice).
I am feeling slightly better today. Im still coughing and have an earache, but Im sneezing way less. So, I think between misses those doses and being outside I was coming down with a major cold! Plus, everyone at my house has been sick for several several weeks...
Lyrica(15 months on, but now officially off of it!) and Paxil(about 6+- months)
