I am feeling sick to my stomach with fever like symptoms, body aches and a temperature. I am supposed to cut back to 10 mg a day of Paxil to ween myself off over the next two weeks. Anyone else come off Paxil for this drug? I am currently diagnosed with panic and anxiety disorder along with depression and have been since 2001. Any advice of things to expect? I am very nervous about coming off Paxil after 11 years and really hope pristiq works for me. I guess I'm most worried about battling panic attacks again. I know it will probably take a month to know whether or not this was the right choice but thought maybe someone else out there might have some good advice to put my mind at ease. Thanks in advance.

In all of my years of being on anti-depressant meds, I simply stopped one and started a new one. No weaning. Are you on Klonopin for your panic/anxiety issues? They can be most terrifying at times, and it does sound to me, panic issues are biting your ankles right now. Please ask your doc for an anti-anxiety med for this transition from one to another. Just might relieve your anxiety.
