... doxepin a few years ago. I have ocd and depression. The paxil does not work like it did anymore. Should I be adding an additional med now, taper off the paxil? I tried to taper off once before and got the ELECTRIC SHOCKS and was miserable until I raised it back. Any advice my paxil taking friends???
After 12 years if the Dr tapers you off (the only way to do it) it should be a gradual 5-7 month wean down, At that point if you start up again at the base dose and give it 2-3 months, you can start if again and it will work for you again. Takes patience and the Doc's supervision, but that's how, once you find one that works (a blessing in itself) and your system get to the tolerance point as yours did, you get to stick with the same med, but it's all the way off first or it won't work. Even if yo opt to switch, the wean down period should be the same, or you'll get overlap and not know which is causing what.
