Side Effects Of Paxil

Recommended Posts

Since having my daily dose of paxil increased to 60 mg, I have noticed bouts of feeling really hot & sweating a lot. Has anyone else on paxil noticed such a side effect? I told my non-English speaking shrink who upped the dosage in the first place about this but she just dismissed the whole thing as being "hot flashes".

Liz & Allan & Pete:

I have been on Paxil in the past. As a matter of fact ... I have been on many of the anti-depressants.

Zoloft aka "Blast Off' was the worst ... and Remeron & Paxil worked the best on me.

Sweats ... I can't remember ... but they sure do knock down your "Sexual Function" as a male.

I have talked to other males and the main side effects were ... (1) ED ... and .. (2) Sweats & Chills.

FYI .... For me only ... I found that by NOT taking the anti-depressants and sticking with a good anti-anxiety drug like Klonopin has really helped me a lot.

Liz .... FYI .... maybe 15 years ago ... civilian docs had me on mega doses of Zoloft and Xanax and it made me even more sleepy and depressed ..... so ... after years of experimenting ..... I have now learned what works best for me and it is .... one drug and in a light dose too ..... KLONOPIN ... which is a ligher and longer acting agent like Xanax ..... I call "Klonopin" .... "VERY LITE XANAX"....

Xanax is super for a rapid panic attack though ... but with the Klonopin ...the panic attacks can really be controlled too. Xanax acts fast and hits hard and leaves fast .... Klonopin acts slow .. stays longer and is my miracle drug.

Needless to say ...never "Cold Turkey" anti-depressants either. I went cold turkey off 300 mg (mega dose) of Zoloft years ago and my body felt like a rubber water balloon. ... :wacko:

Sorry for the mindless babling .... but I wanted to express how some of those drugs worked on me.

Good luck ....

...Magoo .. aka ... Bill ... :)

For the record Bill Xanax is the main reason I am able to be here. It is the only med that I refuse to change.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
