How Prozac can help with Paxil withdrawal ? I'm on day 3 of 1/2 dose of Paxil & I'm supposed to start Prozac today. Please tell me this will help? I started having trouble on the Paxil, but these side effects of tapering down is bad too. When the Paxil is almost gone out of my system I feel better. Then it's time to take my reduced dose it comes back on? Any one have any thoughts? My skin feels like it's on fire.
