Dear , I can understand your problem. Psychiatric problems are always treated with a combination of medicines, psychotherapy and counseling. You are taking medicines but not supplementing it with psychotherapy and counseling. In fact, psychotherapy and counseling will help you to quit the medicine and continue without medicines. Please contact me with every detail and I will help you. Take care.

Hello, simple answer is with controlled release (cr) preparation, paroxetine shall remain in blood stream for longer time & will have less chance of adverse side effects like dry mouth, sleepiness etc. So, depending upon a patients profile psychiatrist shall choose whether paroxetine plain or paroxetine-cr is of better use.

My wife aged 43 years is taking her depression treatment of Tab. PaxidepCR 12.5 mg OD and Tab. Tab. Sulpitac 50 mg since May 2007. She is also a patient of Schizophrenia and now she is stable with the treatment. Will she take this treatment for life long or other wise?

As of today, treatment for some forms of schizophrenia is life long. Since 2007, she is suffering from schizophrenia. So in all respects, she may have to take the medicines for life. Some intelligent doctor like me said the same for cancer and AIDS. But research has caught up and now we have treatment for both cancers and AIDS. So in all likelihood, there will be a permanent cure for schizophrenia.

Which ssri can be taken concomitantly with paroxetine for anxiety and dysphoria. Patient is on paroxetine but we need an ssri to augment the mood level. Already tried vilazodone. Are there any antidepressants (ssri) which do not interact with paroxetine, such as prozac and zoloft and the like.

Paroxetine by itself is an ssri, kindly consult an experienced psychiatrist and it is wise not to meddle with the medications, as there is risk of serotonin syndrome and others. All the best.

I had a panic attack today. I am on medication paroxetine. Right now I am having dizziness what should I do?

Hi lybrate-user. Since when have you been on paroxetine? If you've started recently, it could be a side effect. If you're feeling dizzy even after having a glass of water and sitting for a minute of two, go to the emergency room as it can be something other than a mental health incident. However, if you do think it is related to your panic attack, then you can consider psychotherapy or counseling. It's shown to be effective alongside ssris (such as the medication you're on.)
