Sorry my friend forgot to mention the horrendous back pain too, the pain has been excruciating, taking me 6/7 tiny slithers of movements
just to be able to turn over in bed at night. The odd thing is, that while i was tapering, the pain began in 05, and was not severe, but was
persistent, since being at very low dose the pain ramped up, and since getting off , it just got worse and worse, until it became what i can
only describe as horrendous, excruciating and very long lasting, like 24/7.
However, over the last month or 6 weeks, i have noticed that the pain pattern has changed,
ie, not 24/7 anymore, i could wake up pain free and stay that way until 3pm in the afternoon, then pattern change again the last 2 weeks,
the pain only ramped up between 5/7 in the evening and continue until i went to sleep.
The good news i want to share with you all is, that since monday of this week, i had such a bad day in wd, and tha pain kicked in around 4pm
but only lasted about an hour. Since then i have had ZERO backpain yipppeeeeee, it feels like im in heaven truly, i dont know if this is my new permanent state now, but im hoping and praying that i havent spoken prematurely and this pain free state continues.
And yes because i have had no injury or trauma to my back, never experienced back pain in my life, i really do think the way the pain pattern has
developed, that this is most definately down to paxil wd. My fingers are crossed that this is my new permanent state now.
Began taking 30mg Seroxat on 15th Jan 1997 for grief issues. Remained at that dosage until Dec 05, did doctor ct, akathesia set in along with being non functional and overly emotional, brain fog. Doctor prescribed prozac, propranelol and diazeapam to counteract side effects, and told me to ct those 3 after 2.5/3 months use, induced wd seizure on 2nd day after ct. Was reinstated on seroxat 20mg in april 06, remained at that dose until Nov 07 and began a very slow taper lasting 56 months, finally DRUG FREE on 11th may 2011.
