Please make sure you do a very slow taper when coming off paxil. Docs don't understand the bad side effects coming off. Read up on paxil withdrawal.

Anyone Take Paxil?

Anyone Take Paxil?

I have been on paxil for 20 years since I started Avonex. Think then it went hand n hand. Don't think I ever really needed it. Working on tapering off as it's a nightmare of a drug. A few side effects but so far so good. I have more energy then I have had in years. Hope it keeps up. But you have to taper off very slowly. Anyone else taper off paxil?

You were lucky no side effects.

Wellbutrin, Prozac And Rebif

Wellbutrin, Prozac And Rebif

After gaining a lot of weight, I weaned myself off it this summer with the help of my doctor. I have been using both prozac and wellbutrin, lowest dosages possible but I am curious if anyone has any information on either of these with Rebif. Wellbutrin seems to make me more anxious which my doctor said would… read more

What Helps With Anxiety And Panic Attacks?

What Helps With Anxiety And Panic Attacks?

Anxiety and panic attacks aren't new but my lack of control or handling them has changed since MS. Since I suffer from cognitive and memory problems I can't remember exactly what I did before. It's so embarrassing that I just want to stay home and text people forever but that's not living. I'm sick of just existing.

Antidepressants ?

Antidepressants ?

I was just reading article about Fibromyalgia treatments and it stated patients have been given antidepressants that help with pain etc. Seeing sometimes MS has such similar symptoms as fibro I was wondering if anyone here takes antidepressants for MS and if it helps ?

I take Paxil and Neurontin and neither help the Fibro. I took Cymbalta and Lyrica and wanted to dive under a truck. Neither helped, so they put me on Lortab as I am allergic to other pain meds.I still… read more
