Elwood Posted January 18, 2007 Share Posted January 18, 2007 My former p-doc started me on Paxil but was adamant that I stay at 30mg's or below per day and that never, under any circumstances was I to exceed 40mg. He moved out of state and my GP moved me up to 40mg. I finally got a new p-doc who at first said that I should really be on Wellbutrin instead. He proceded to whittle away at the Paxil dosage until it hit 20mg's or so, but then I slipped into a pretty good depression and he's been raising it ever since. New I'm up to 50mg and I really think Paxil is casuing as many problem as it solves. P-doc has completely abandoned the Wellbutrin theory and is now convinced that Paxil was right all along. P-docs are very hard to come by in my area so I'm not sure switching docs is even possible or practical. I know better than to deliberately disobey p-doc but I gotta say, I really disagree with him on Paxil. At 50mg's it seems to only induce rapid cycling and deeper suicidal ideation. I have to assume that some of y'all have been through disagrement with p-docs in the past. What should I do? Should I call for an earlier appointment and try again, even more insistently that this isn't working? Look for another doc? I'm at a loss a to what the best course of action is at this point.
