  1. Hello, I am new here and 3 months fully off of Paxil, tapered from 20mg over the last year. I am experiencing debilitating panic and anxiety with cortisol spikes from early morning to about noon, and in the 3-4 weeks I resorted to taking tiny doses (7 total, of 0.125mg to 0.25mg) of clonazepam which really help an *unbelievable* amount (even at tiny doses). I am overall doing better than I was from my 5th month into tapering to about a month ago I guess, the progress is slow and painful, but it is there. I feel I am stalled though, or exasperated with the extreme tension, which made me reach

    Needhelp: Hello

    Hello, here for support and advice. Insomnia came on gradually. Sleeping less, waking earlier.

He tapered me off very quickly, from 40 mg to 20 mg in one day, and from 20 mg to 10 mg to 0 in one month. Also ketipinor (seroquel)
  4. A few years ago tried to get off Paxil, but was unsuccessful (I had a car accident in the process - due to being unable to judge how far my car was from an ATM and severe vertigo). I have been on Paxil (was started on 85 mg) for over 20 years. I was started on Prozac and multiple other medications prior to getting on Paxil and during my trials of discontinuing Paxil. Eventually, I had a complete thyroidectomy (I was previously misdiagnosed as having Bipolar Disorder). I believe I was misdiagnosed due to family history – my mother was schizophrenic and because I developed OCD as a child. My psy
