Dito!f**k paxil. If by "works" you mean "dramatically effects you" as compared to other SSRIs that did completely nothing for me, than yes. I'm really pissed though and I hate the drug...
Worked for me for over 6 yrs... Got me into college, made friends, got a job etc etc.I took this stuff for 3 months and stopped cold turkey
Just another expensive placebo pill
Was it your first AD ?Worked for me for over 6 yrs... Got me into college, made friends, got a job etc etc.
Something I don't have now and something I didnt find when triying zoloft, lexapro, wellbutrin and effexor.
There were side effects but im thinking of getting back on it.
What I'm about to say I just realized two days ago... and it makes me sick. It may sound trivial to some people but to me it's not because 1. I am a man 2. My body is sacred to me (bc my mind and emotions are f'ed, but my body I can control). Well here it is: I have always been able to shoot my semen... pretty far and forceful. All of a sudden, around the week before I went to my freshman year in college my semen came out very weak and was slightly more forceful than just dripping. IT has been like that since then, gotten a little better but nothing close to what it used to be. I thought it was just cause I getting older (but Im 20). So I just remembered my pdoc who was prescriping it for the first time warned "there is a risk that it can cause irregular ejaculations" (IN FRONT OF MY MOM!) so I just brushed it under the rug and mumbled that I wasn't concerned about that.The first time on it I got it a bit
The second time i got nothing
Wow, me too. I have no memory from when I was on SSRI's. It also made me more depressed and anxious, but with new research that hardly seems surprising:On a side note, I remember paxil made me enjoy music A LOT and find deep meaning and comfort in it. It also made me forget basically that whole period of my life when I was on it (senior year high school). it is very foggy. It's like my "Dark Age". that's actually a really good triple meaning because I described my experience on paxil to another member and I said it made everything dark: the world and how I saw it was literally darker than usual
