Hi, I have been on both Paxil
and the oxycodone
family of drugs
. By the way Oxycontin and Percocet are the same drug
, just that Percs have tylenol mixed in with it, or the generic tylenol. I too have pain issues but no longer on any oxycodone and switched from Paxil to Zoloft
A lot of ppl find it impossible to get off Paxil...I tried my way weening down..... and it was insanity!!!!
Until my GP referred me to this Psychiatrist, which told me to stop immediately the Paxil, and take Prozac
20mg once a day, for 4 days then stop the Prozac and I am done. She said I could go on another anti-depressant or jsu stop them all together. I couldn't believe it could be so easy stopping Paxil as I have tried many times, but it worked! 4 days and i was free from Paxil . Every doctor should know this!!!
And with you there buddy, it is so clear that you were taking opiates
, like perc to self medicate your depression, and am so glad you found your way out of opiate
abuse inanity!! Everyone is different, Paxil made me feel really out of it. I am taking Zoloft which helps a bit with anxiety too.
Wishin you all the best fellow Canadian!!
