I was diagnosed with serotonin syndrome while taking Zoloft. After switching to Xanax, the depression and anxiety returned. Next I tried Remeron, which really knocked me out.
Paxil (paroxetine) belongs to an antidepressant drugs called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). It affects chemicals in the brain which have become unbalanced. This remdy is prescribed to cure anxiety disorders, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD).
I suffer from body dysmorphic disorder (BDD). I have been taking Paxil for about a year and it has relieved my depression, but not my delusions or referential thinking.
I was diagnosed with OCD a couple of months ago, even though I have had symptoms since the age of seven. I mentioned to my therapist that during difficult situations, I think people are watching me and that they can sense what is wrong with me.
