Hello all you fellow Anxiety sufferers,
I'm new here and should have probably gotten into a group like this a long time ago. I am 35 years old, female, married, one son 2½. I have been suffering from anxiety since my first attack at the age of 19. Ben through the gammet (sp?) of shrinks, therapists and meds. Prozac was my first, then Lorazepam, now Paxil is the choice of my Family Dr. Been on it for about 5 years now and the dose was increased from 25 mg (controlled realease tablet) to recently (about 6 months) 37 mg. It worked for me for so long. BUT SUDDENLY (about 1 month ago) I started getting pretty bad "zaps" or as some describe "shock". Wondering if any of you on Paxil or have been there.....have you had this feeling after all this time being on the drug? I am going to ask The Doc asap if I can get off of it. The more I read the more I hear about addiction to it etc.
Any advice would be great and thank you for allowing me into this "forum"
I wish you all a state of peace in your head!!!!!! Cause I know I need it!!!!!!
