Help to wean off Paxil/Senior Antidepressants
I am a 68 years old female and 8 weeks ago started Paxil 10 mg. daily for depression/severe anxiety. I actually feel more depressed, headaches daily, brain fog, worsening insomnia and daily nausea. Yes, it did damper my panic attacks – the only positive. Bottom line I don't think this medication is for me and I like to stop it. What are folks thoughts about the weaning off process? I read it can be difficult which frightened me. I will, of course, discuss with my Nurse Psychiatric Practitioner but wanted to hear other folks (especially seniors?) experience with this medication.
