  2. I started paroxetine Feb. 2018. Started on 20mg and increased to 40mg in November 2019. It significantly helped me through a difficult period of mental health. After missing a few days at the beginning of 2020, I decided to just stop taking it (even tho I knew better). Started experiencing significant withdrawal symptoms (sweats, anxiety increase, foggy-headed, light-headed was and dizziness, and brain zaps). I started taking it again after 5 days (symptoms popped up around day 3 and were too much to handle). Within the last few months, my fiancé and I decided we wanted to start a family soon, so I’ve started weaning. 20 mg went well for two weeks, then I went down to 10mg this past week. It feels like I haven’t taken anything at all. Today has been the worst day since dropping the dosage to 10mg. I seen on another post that I should be dropping at 10% every 4 weeks, which is something I could not find anywhere else, so I’m glad I found this group. I’m not having any depressive symptoms, but I am having some hellacious physical ones today. The nausea is currently killing me and the brain zaps are back. I think I’ll go up 5mg and work my way down from there. Edit: I’ve been reading some info on this site and it makes me want to cry with joy. It is making me feel so much more hopeful. I ha e been looking for this type of information since January and couldn’t find anything.
