I was prescribed 10mg of Paxil last Friday (7 days ago). I've been struggling with the side effects and I can't stand it. I feel very restless at night and don't sleep very well and yesterday I had a really bad fit on nausea and feeling faint. Last night I decided to cut it in half (5mg) and I slept better, but im wondering if this is a bad idea to do? Do I need to take the other 5mg or can I stick with just taking 5mg per day, at least for a while and then move back up to 10mg? I'm desperate for something to help my panic disorder but I can't deal with the side effects being so severe.
