I can't remember if this post was on this forum or on another one but I have searched and can't find it.  I was getting antsy in reducing my Paxil and I think I reduced it too much too quick and I'm getting the boo-hoos again in the mornings.  Now I am trying to get back to where I was but am trying to figure out how long it might take to get there.  I was trying to add up how much Paxil is in my system based on the half life but can't remember the formula and someone posted it at one time, I thought.

I am not sure about the half life of paxil, but I wanted to tell you that I support your decision to cut back. Best of luck with it. I hope that you do okay. I know that I will have to be on ad's the rest of my life and I have come to accept that. Though I wish I didn't have to be.

I hope that you are having a good day.

Hugs, Karen

I was hoping to come off of it completely but my doc wants me to stay where I am for now. We'll see....maybe someday.

I posted in both places. It might have been mine. :)
