Thank you for responding. Do you struggle with the same issues???
How old are you? Are you in treatment? Last week I told my doctor
that she wasn’t helping and I didn’t think we should see each other
anymore. So, no I am not seeing anyone. I quit my meds 3 weeks ago,
I was on zoloft.
I think I am setting my own standards, they are just
unattainable. I want perfection, and now matter how much effort I
put in I will never acheive perfection. I can not live with that.

Hi and Welcome.

I don’t take Paxil so I cannot tell you about any personal experience with the side effects. Are you seeing a Psychiatrist for your meds or just your family Doctor?

There are a lot of good meds out there and sometimes it just takes awhile to find the right fit. I would discuss your side effects with your doctor for sure and if you dont have a psychiatrist I would ask for a referral to one they tend to know more of the meds that can help with the depression and anxiety. I am currently on Remeron and Klonopin for the anxiet and panic attacks and have very few if no side effects. So it is important that you communicate to your doctor what it is you need and what kind of side effects you are and are not willing to tolerate. A good doc will work with you.

Depression sucks and the process to recovery can be a hard one. Just know you are not alone :)
