Is there a good substitute for Paxil what she is on hasn't been working
There are a lot of alternatives for paxil but finding one that works for her is the trick. Its trial and error. I have been on many many different antidepressants and the only one that has worked for me is wellbutrin. It may not work for her though. This is a hard question to answer. I know her pain and frustrations though I never stole or lied. What is she on now? Did she stop paxil suddenly? Stopping any antidepressants suddenly can cause a lot of issues. I have adked my husband to go to my dr appts with me so he can explain how I react to meds cause some drs just think you are overreacting when you tell them how bad it is but to have him tell them he was afraid to ho to sleep seems to make the dr really think about what needs to happen. Hope this helps. Keep me posted and I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers. God bless.
P.S. plz don't give up on her yet. Sometimes medicine makes us do crazy things we would never have done otherwise.
