I have been on Paxil for a very, long time. It has always been a good med for me. But with a number of extreme stressors in my life in the past year and a half I have tried a couple of adjuncts. One lamotrigine just made my brain feel dead, emotionless. Now trying Topamax which makes me feel pretty tired and just ho-hum most of the time. I am looking for something to really just give me back that desire to feel normal again. Any ideas I can research? I am very pro-active in my own health.
What are some good adjuncts to pair with Paxil CR?

I am in the same boat. Have taken paxil successfully for 20 yrs. but am going down hill now. Have a doctor's appt. in 4 days and would love to know of any answers you find. I too have had extreme stressors the past year. Thx.
I have also been on paxil for many years and I felt like it stopped working as well so my doctor suggested I take buspar and it has worked wonders.
Hi zapdmom, have any of your doctors suggested Abilify? I see their adds and wonder if that would be a good one for you. Pledge would know if Abilify is a good idea or not, so if you see this pledge, please comment?
I'm so surprised that you've only gotten one answer on your question.
Wait a little while, and ask it again, or wait for others to answer your query.
Hello zapdmom. Remeron might be a good choice. There are warnings to mixing the two Paxil/Remeron but I've been on this combination for years now and comfortable doing so. I use the Remeron off label for sleeping. The Paxil for anxiety. Another choice might be Wellbutrin. Regards pledge
