Some of the spaced out feeling may be from the paxil so you don't want to increase the dose until that wears away.
You should see a psychiatrist for a number of reasons, only one of which is medication management. Once you become afraid of what is happening to your body, you become too conscious of it, and too worried.. When you talk to a psychiatrist you will be talking about other worries in your life that are bothering you more than you realize. You may be the kind who deals well with a lot of stress so don't feel stressed, but the worries and unsolved problems still eat away at you from below, and erupt in panic attacks. Get help early, don't wait for it to get worse
Very well could be anxiety. I had all the same symptoms and had every test imaginable which all came out fine. I started taking 20mg Paxil and am now fine, I still have my moments but nothing like before. I have since cut my dose back to 10mg and I am doing great on that. But I had to start at a higher dose. It is still a good decision to get everything checked out to be sure though. Good luck ! Danielle
Just wondering... do u overdose on vitamins?? why is ur uric acid so high?
Nope. I don't take any vitamins, don't drink a lot. Don't know why it's high. Although I think uric acid is produced by the liver and gall bladder.
I relate to many of your feelings,
and want to direct you to a forum with lots of members who share your symptoms, http://pub125.ezboard.com/fdizzyloungefrm0
I have had "panic attacks" since my early 20's back in my early 20's I wouldn't have been considered a "nervous" person I'm 38 now and basally have no life, if you scroll down this message board to my original post you can read how messed up I am...I got back on Paxil a little while back, when I went from 10 mg to 20 mg I felt all weird and unreal so I cut back to 10 mg and it's better however now I'm also on 0.5 mg Xanax twice a day or as needed for my anxiety that causes panic attacks,
I never knew the trigger of my panic attacks I just know they have come and gone over the years and now I do know the panic attacks are directly related to stress, but I have other "issues" you don't have....The mind is a weird thing and it's weird how it effects the body. I know in my case I need to drop about 20-30 lb., I'm 210 now at 6'2" and I "feel" better at about 170lbs, I don't know your build, but exercise when you feel up to it is always a good thing for the mind and body....
Best wishes, koala
I have had similiar feelings. I was at home with my wife when I had my first attack. I have since left my home/wife 3 times because of anxiety attacks and confusion. I am now on Paroxetine 20mg. I was on half a tablet for 10 days and then went to the full tablet. Four weeks later I still am experiencing side effects (Tired all day, Insomnia at night, Mood swings) but since being on the medication I haven't had any attacks. I still get anxiety every now and then but nothing severe. I just hope the side effects go away after a few more weeks as I hate not feeling normal. (Feeling unmotivated and tired most of the time). Before Paroxetine i took Prozac which knocked me for 6 and made me feel heavily medicated. I stopped those after 2 weeks. I have been looking at other drugs but all have side effects so I guess it's just part of what you have to go through to get back on top. Im currently going to counselling sessions as well to talk about my underlying fears/problems.
