I have had anxiety for about 5 yrs. now, I was on paxil and out of the blue I started having adverse effects, I've been off of paxil 30 mgs for 2 weeks now, my dr. wanted me to see how I did w/o it. That was the worse mistake of my life, I started lexapro and am on my first week, I'm also on alprozam until the lexapro takes full effect, I'm going out of my mind, uncontrollable shaking, my head feels like it's going to explode, and many other things I can't explain. I have a lot of questions I hope some of u can answer,
1. Did anyone switch for paxil to lexapro and how long does it take to work correctly?
2. How did you handle the transiton.
3. I'm on Nexium and that is the only thing I can think would bring the sudden symptoms I'm having, has anybody w/ anxiety had problems while on nexium? I've been on for 2yrs. of Nexium.
I can't explain what happened, I was doing so well for so long. I really need help, I've been on an internship for 6 mths. and can't afford to miss work, they're about to hire me. I try to sleep as much as I can so I don't have to deal w/ it but believe it or not I think I have attacks in my sleep.Thanks to anyone that responds
