Ive been taking Paxil for a while for depression. I tried to go off of it but I became highly irritible, so Im on 20mg a day. Anyway, I just had another episode yesterday that I need to discuss. I saw my brother, whom I haven't seen in almost 2 years, I sped up along side of him on a toll way, I honked and waved, I don't think he saw me but I started to get very dizzy and "spacey" with kind of like blurred vision. This used to happen to me all the time in school when the teacher called on me. Now, I never hyper ventilate, but my heart rate does rise. Also, when I got in one of the few fist fights of my life, I would pretty much black out. I wouldn't even be able to process in my mind what was going on, like I was just on auto-pilot. So I would just become a punching bag, lol. I joined this site because I am having problems with my ulcerative colitis, so I thought Id talk with you guys about my other issues too. Any replies would be appreciated.
