I belive that I am having the lovely paxil withdrawal symptoms, they are not life threatening (yet), as you can see from my signature line I have been totally off Paxil for 1 week 3 days -- and you can see that I started Cymbalta to replace Paxil as it pooped on me and threw me into bipolar II episode -- thanks Paxil.
Anyone had experience with paxil w/d and can you give insight or suggestions on how I can elieviate the symptoms, if my anxiety gets too bad I take .5 Klon and that has been pretty much every day. I know that Cymbalta will take time to get into system, this is week 3 of 60mg -- hurry up and work please! I would like to feel like I have my life back.
