Sixstringkate Posted September 30, 2011 Share Posted September 30, 2011 Tapering off paroxetine (paxil) to venafwhateverthefuck it is (effexor.) Last week, 40mg paxil. This week, 37.5mg effexor x2 daily and 20mg paxil. Day One: Ridiculously cheerful and chatty. Decided I needed to become a Buddhist. Took meds on schedule with food. Day Two: Still pretty euphoric, but more chatty. Decided to renew my faith as a Protestant Christian. Took meds on schedule with food. Day Three: Confused, vaguely anxious, and tired. Tremors too. Could barely concentrate on driving, let alone deep philosophical matters. Had some pretty fucked up dreams last night, and woke up kind of anxious. Took morning meds on schedule, but the kids were having a rough day, so I didn't get lunch or meds until almost 5pm. That certainly didn't help with the tremors. Find myself drifting off in thought, or concentrating on something random in the middle of doing something else. Also having, uh... unusual issues in the lady parts. Typing this coherently has been difficult. Maintaining a conversation has been challenging. All I've wanted to do all day is sit in a dark room, stare at a wall, and drool quietly to myself. Which is sadly out of the question for a stay at home mom of twin toddlers. Is this what SNRI's do? Is this what Effexor specifically does? Or is this Paxil withdrawal? Because it sucks.
