I too took Paxil years ago...when I took the Paxil, I was agoraphobic, had several panic attacks daily and was basically at the end of my rope...I had no quality to my life but I do remember that when I started the Paxil, my attacks and symptoms got worse. I remember researching medicines and Paxil had I think the longest and scariest side effects list! Like Kitt said, it is similar to Paxil, so that may be why the weird and strong feelings.
I too think if you were having those terrible feelings, it was good that you stopped for the time being until you talk with your doctor.
Hang in there...you will find something that will work for you.
P.S. You said your doc doesn't like prescribe more than one med at a time...are you comfortable with him/her? IMO, I would ask if he/she could give you some xanax or klonopin to take the edge off until you find the medication that works best for you.
I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much.
