I had some irratibility, anxiety and obesessive thoughts which is why I restarted. How long till it kicks back in esp since I was on it for 15 years and only off for 11 days
I would point you to the prescribing physician. Does he/she know you stopped? Crashing off like that can make restarting unpleasant because of the way these meds work in the body, I would strongly advise you check with Doc before proceeding any farther so as to avoid any unnecessary complications. Hope this helps.
I agree with the above post. I will tell you my experience also. Again, this is my experience only. I took Paxil for 10 years. In that 10 years, I stopped a couple times for a very brief time(like you). It took a few weeks for it to kick back in, but without all the horrible side effects. Then I quit for six months and was never able to take it again. Side effects were way to harsh. I wish you luck.
