Paroxetine by JustAnthony on Sun Oct 28, 2012 10:19 am
Ok so I have been having trouble with OCD type thoughts for a quite a while now and have had SA since I was 18 yrs old, I am 46 now. The thoughts are of the distressing kind, very annoying and make me feel like a low kind of person. I am seeing a Psychologist now and he has recommended an SSRI in conjunction with CBT. It's been a week and two days since I started on Paroxetine and so far all I seem to have gotten from it is an insatiable desire to sleep all the time and the occasional feeling of dread.

I am determined to give it a real chance to work though so I will just have to try and plow through the side affects and see what's on the other side. I am currently only taking 20mg per day.At the start of the year while going through a work crysis I was given Pristique to try by my doctor but that was hell on earth and it made me a little gun shy of meds,anyway like I said I wil give Paroxetine a chance and see what happens. Wish me luck ok?! :)
