... pretty, I feel like I am losing my mind. Paxil has been great but I want to have children and do not want to have the risk of hurting my baby. Any suggestions or advice
Going to have to give your body and brain time to adjust to the chemical changes. If you have tapered off the Paxil slowly over time, then that is all you can do to avoid withdrawal type symptoms. You may find that the depression, anxiety and irritability increase while off the Paxil, but you are just going to have to hang in there knowing the reason you want to do this.
Hi belle127. Just adding my thoughts to what Laurie already said. After sitting and trying to come up with a drug that you might beable to use while being pregnant you are limited. Not certain if you're taking the paxil for anxiety or depression. Wellbutrin, has not shown to date if it is harmfull to be on while being pregnant. Otherwise, you might just have to endure the side-effects untill they go away.Best wishes.
