Paxil Lump in throat after 3 days.... will it go away?

Hi,

I have very very reluctantly gone on a low dose of Paxil 5mg per day due to anxiety, panic and agoraphobia. I made this decision after trying 'everything' natural and nothing really making enough difference, the years are going by and I'm geting used to this 'small' world, well had to do something. I tried Lexapro 2 years agao for 3 days and was very very ill from it.
So now the Paxil is making me have a lump in my throat...will this go away? If it won't I'm getting off this now, if it's temporary I'll try to deal with it.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Is there an actual lump? Like an allergic reaction or is it only a sensation?

Maybe the medication is causing irratation to your stomach? the lump in the throat sounds like acid reflux or Gerd. r u having any other symptoms that would lean in this direction?

It's feels like a lump and only started after taking 3 doses of Paxil.....It doesn't feel like an upset stomach. It feels like when you have a sore throat and its hard to swallow. I read you should take a stomach pill to counteract this but I don't beleive in this cycle....if the pill is giving you too many side effects, I'm quitting. I'm not geting into the roller coaster of multiple pills. I'll give it another week.

Good for you! I agree--taking one pill then taking another to counter the side effects etc.. doesnt make sense. I wish you well!

well, you beat me to the punch. thats where i was heading with it but i'm glad you r on top of things. If the problem persists though the paxel may have given you a bit of gerd and there are some natural remedies that will work. u just have to give them a shot. google it.
