    Default paxil short term start up symptoms and withdrawal

    Hello! I started taking paxil for IBS and after 1 week I stopped because the start up symptoms were unbearable. Racing heart, insomnia, tremor, nausea, dizziness, no appetite, and headache. I understand that there are withdrawal effects from stopping paxil or other SSRIs but I was only on it for 1 week. I'm still feeling a little dizzy and shaky, though I'm much improved than I was while taking paxil. How long should I expect this kind of thing to last? I thought it would be out of my system by now but I'm still feeling a bit strung out from it! Thanks.

    Id call your dr or pharmacy as soon as you can. I dont know if maybe there is something they can give you to help you get thru it. When I was on paxil I would get cold sweats very bad when I was sleeping. That would happen even if I forgot to take it one time. So I believe thats a pretty bad one for withdrawl. hope this helps. good luck

    Paxil is an EVIL drug. I was on it for 8 months for depression and coming off of it was AWFUL! The withdrawal symptoms were horrible and lasted forever. I do not recommend anyone start this drug. Just look it up and you will see all the lawsuits against the company who manufactured it.
