PAXIL WEANING........ ENDED

Hi RFR,Well, my paxil weaning is over. My body doesn't seem to be able to function at a high level with less than 30mgs, which is a small dose. I was hoping to be free of meds but if I can't function on my job and if I'm SNAPPY with my family, what's the point. So for now, its back to 30 mgs a day. I've had bad panic attacks the last week or so & haven't been able to work. While I'm still highly raw and vegetarian, I don't like feeling this way. It's better to be able to function and take…See More

PAXIL WEANING.... CONTINUED

Posted on January 21, 2013 at 11:35am 2 Comments

Hi RFR,

I have been at 15mgs now for 3 weeks. My next level will be 13.5mgs which I will start Friday. I haven't been below 15mgs since '97.

 

I have had NO side effects and have been feeling great ( except when I eat SAD junk food).

 

I had a totally AWSOME experience last Saturday. I went to North Bay, MD with 80 youth from our church.We did a POLAR BEAR PLUNGE in the Chesapeak bay. It was one of the most exilarating experiences of my 57 yrs!!! …

PAXIL WEANING.... HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Posted on January 3, 2013 at 3:17pm 2 Comments

Hi RFR,

Happy New Year!!

 

I am now down to 15mgs a day. The 1st couple of days after reducing, I can be somewhat touchy but for the most part I've been free of the terrible side effects people suffer when they try to reduce or stop an anti-depressant.

 

Food does make a HUGE difference. If you lay off the excito-toxins in most SAD food, you'll be less anxious. I'm in a great place right now with my food choices. I'm not 100% raw but I am Almost 100%…

PAXIL WEANING -- LAST 4 WEEKS OR SO

Posted on December 19, 2012 at 4:31pm 1 Comment

Hi RFR,

I am continuing to wean from paxil. I'm down to 17.5 mgs. I started at 30 mgs 3 months ago. I have had NO negative side effects to speak of.

 

Still eating very high raw, about 90%, vegan 99.5%, but I did have veal parm at a Christmas party last Friday.

 

Today, I started to walk again. I did 1.5 miles. This program suggested that you not exerise unless you already were active but I just can't stand the feeling of my gut being on my lap…

The only things you can control are:

how you think and speak,what you do:  what you eat, what you drink, when you move your body, when you sleep, how you will respond to any situation. 

Master these simple things positively and you will be amazed at the changes that will come into your life!  Let this be your year to SHINE!!
