Weaning off Paxil

I am detoxing from Paxil 2nd time couldnt take it the first time went back on it to stop how I felt. Everything people say it true. The headaches, dizziness, disorienated feeling, sick to your stomach, stress feeling, migraines, everything is what I felt. I am doing it again lost my med. ins. so no choice. Cold turkeys where Im at. It's horrible.
I found that Excedrin migrane (migraine) helps, Motion eaze which is liquid u put behind ur ear lobe for car sickness. I also put a half of teas. of baking soda in a 1/2 cup of water and drank this for my stomach to help settle it down , It has helped SOOO MUCH . I am sharing this to try and help someone. I also took some muscal relaxer pills helped.
Its a tough road Im in my 3rd week w/out Paxil I have to do the things I said daily. If I dont use the Motion eaze and baking soda water and Excedrin Migraine everyday I would not function. It isnt a cure But I can drive, go to work, and survive my daily life. Before these things I could hardly get out of the bed, I wore sunglasses all the time because I thought my head was splitting open, and I would throw up too. I thought I was dieing at times because I felt so bad. All of these things I am doing can be bought at the store . They cant hurt you and w/out help from a doctor its a fix u can live with well at least I have been able too. I read all of these symptoms from everyone a week and a half ago I was in the same shape as everyone on here. So I started doing things that I used in the past. The motion sickness stuff was a fluke I seem this in my purse I carry it with me incase I get car sick. I thought how I feel now was kinda how I felt when I got car sick so I just tried it and to my surprise it was so quick to help my dizziness. The I felt like I was getting hurtburn and I always drink the soda/water for that for years I took it and it helped so much w/my withdrawls and excedrin migraine was suggested to me so I tried it and it helped to so all 3 of these things keep me going.
I hope u will try this let others know if it helps cause the Paxil withdrawls the worse Ive ever felt as others have so I hope it helps u to do this.
I had to share. GOOD LUCK all my fellow Paxil withdrawler friends :)

Does'nt Paxil come in generic now? I'll have to check on that for you. Or, you can ask your Dr or pharmacist.
Did you stop cold turkey or did you do a taper?

I lost my job my ins. so I had 3 mos left on my presciption. So I tried to ween but I ended up going cold turkey. I was on generic paxil. The problem is I had to go back to the Dr. every 6 mos. to renew my Pres. just happens 3 mos was the end couldnt afford to spend 100 bucks on Dr. visit. I Divorced and barely making it on MY own so there's no way I could afford the DR. app. and script. plus I dont want to be anything to me its about money. I went cold turkey cause I tried to ween but ended up taking it to feel better. Its rough out here alone and no back up I havent been single for 29 years so there was no choice.

Sue, google The Road Back.  You may find help there for your withdrawal.  They tell you to taper 5% every two weeks.  They are very nice and have people that will talk to you.  There is not charge.  I did their program and went off of Risperadol, doxipin and klonipin (klonopin) without any trouble at all.  Hope this helps you. Prayer for you,  Linda
