  1. hello! im so happy to have found this site. I guess i will introduce myself i have been on Paxil for about 4 to 5 years now, taking a pretty low dose of 20 mg. I tried quitting about a year ago, my doctor was supportive but gave me no information about withdrawal and such. After two days with 10 mg I immediately went back. i thought it was my anxiety, not withdrawal. I am now quitting again. I reduced my dose to 10 mg and i have been on this for about 4 days. I am already getting bad symptoms. feeling depressed, tired, crying for no reason, emotional, intrusive thoughts, and anxiety. But honestly I am so determined to quit this time because I want to live a drug free life. I have been praying a lot as a coping method which helps. Here are a list of supplements i've been taking that help make my symptoms less severe (not saying you should do what i say at all, this is just what helped me. i'm not a doctor) : Magnesium, Niacinamide, D3, Iodine, Ashwaganda, and herbal teas. Thank you for having me in this beautiful community, I hope to contribute to in some way. peace will come starting dose: Paxil 20 mg current: paxil 10 mg
  2. I need help, my mom basically went cold turkey off of her depression medication and is at about a 9 out of 10 with all the worst symptoms, uncontrollable sobbing, shaking uncontrollably, can't walk more then 5 feet without collapsing, wishes she would die, etc. It's bad. Anyway, she lives in a small town and we have been unable to find anyone to help her that has dealt with anti depressant withdraw symptoms. She is now refusing even the smallest amounts of medical care and the family feels it may be time to put her into a treatment facility. We are very worried that if we don't get someone who understands both the good and bad issues that accompany antidepressants, that she will just be prescribed more. So my question is, has anyone been in a treatment center that has helped (location doesn't matter) or know someone who has? I have tried to contact Dr. Glenmullen several times to try and fly her to Boston but have received no response. Any doctor in Michigan or California would be helpful as well. We are lost and searching for answers. Thank you.
