Is paxil sedating or activating
A few of these side effects mentioned above have mellowed out and that is why I thought it would get better, however I still have the painful boils, hyperactivity (feel like I am on speed), abdominal pain, constipation and loose stools, migraines, insomnia, dry mouth, chest palpitations, hostility, shakiness, internal restlessness and Jitteriness. Thats when my appetie goes berserk and so I then eat my my evening meal. Oh, I did get hungar pangs on seroquel, but it effected me less than remeron does.
Just last night I could not fall a sleep until am and woke up at am (waking up 6 times in between). I miss sleeping peacefully for 8-10hrs and waking up refreshed. Through that way of doing it, I stay away from snacking. Got a late night snack attack but a lot less than I do on mirtazapine(its the generic of remeron).
I guess he wants to try another med which is scary for me because I don’t want the same things to happen, but the other thing that is scary is what damage have I done to myself with this damn Zoloft, it should have been stopped when I told the other psychiatrist all this instead of being told it is all in my damn head. At any rate, I wonder if I will ever be normal again and if there is any better SSRI’s out there that can help my GAD, BPD, OCD, Depression and now INSOMNIA!! Long tale short, I started on paxil, just this past May. I replaced that with remeron (mirtazapine) I take 130mg, begin late afternoon around 5pm 45mg, then around 7pm another 45mg, then 9pm, the last 45mg. It certainly does not make me tired and I have to take klonopin for that.
I have never done speed but OMG, if this is how it feels... So with all this said, can anyone please please please point me in the right direction and educate me on the most sedating meds that help with all my symptoms… Thank you for taking the time to read my post - Hugs! I took .5mg Klonopin last night and I wish it was not a benzo or addicting because I LOVE that medicine, it helps me sleep and rids my anxiety. The lamictal, has (and I could be wrong here) whats the word, properties that will sedate you.
Finally got off of it I too take clonzapram for sleep and it .5 miligrs and I love it. Your psych will know a range of meds; all meds, absolutely all of them react differently in individual bodies so no-one can really tell you BEFORE you take a med what it might do to you [that's what i think].
we know 'trial and error' or trial and learn as i call it is mostly the way medicating people with our conditions is done.
I've been on Wellbutrin XL for major depression and have had good luck with it. When someone is on a prescribed medication such as Klonopin, Xanax, Morphine, etc., they do not get addicted but they get dependent on the medication. If you take it as prescribed and see your psychiatrist on a regular basis you should be fine. When my doctor started reducing my dosage, I did not have any withdrawal symptoms. I am a bit relived after reading your reply and I really believe that you are right about my psychiatrist will be able to wean me off safely when the time comes.that psychiatrist did not have any info on my evaluations from my original psychiatrist and just gave me Zoloft and never really cared to find out about my conditions or listen to my updates or problems I was experiencing with the severe side effects.In fact; he said it was all in my head even though the emergency room and my general doctor could clearly see it was not just in my head!! At any rate, I have been experiencing so much trouble with Zoloft but thought it would get better and since I have never been on an ssri before I figured maybe I am just being a wimp after all my anxiety is getting a little better during the day and people say it gets worse before it gets better…it is wonderful to know I now can and it reassures me that I am going through all phases of my sleep cycle and when I do wake up, I can easily fall back to sleep which I never could do on Zoloft. I don’t have any withdraws from stopping Zoloft which is wonderful because I was extremely worried I would. However, I am now worried that Zoloft “the drug from hell” has permanently messed me up for good when it comes to my sleep since I still wake up throughout the night (not nearly as much as I did on Zoloft) but I don’t get my 8-10hrs uninterrupted sleep either.I wonder if I will ever be myself again when it comes to my sleep of 8-10 hrs per night uninterrupted, I guess I will have to wait and see.
