Can I Take Paxil With Alcohol

Nov 11, 2005

I am diagnosed with major depressive disorder. I know this sounds bad enough, but there is one more problem with me. I like to drink alcohol; no matter I know I should not do this. My last doctor prescribed me Paxil to treat this disorder. Now I would like to know more about this drug, and what happens if I mix Paxil with alcohol?

Consequences Of Paxil And Alcohol?

i'm wondering what the physical consequences of alcohol and paxil are? i've read and been told everything from death to increased drowsiness, but have personally found that most of my problems occur after drinking, not during. i have noticed my heart beating slower, but assumed it was because i was relaxed.

lately i have been dealing with sleep disturbances and mental confusion, as well as anxiety. recently my paxil dosage was increased from 20mg to 30mg. i drink, on average, a moderate dose of whisky a night. (roughly half of a pint, to be exact).

Could Paxil Be Used For My Anxiety?

For sometime now I am diagnosed with anxiety. I get some medications and was advised for group therapy. Problem is that I do not feel better at all. I am still "trembling" every time I had to do some things or to go somewhere. Friend of mine told me that Paxil helped her with hers problems. I have no knowledge of hers diagnose, but I wonder, could Paxil be used for my anxiety?

Antidepressants :: Can You Take Paxil Sporadically?

I am trying to deal with my depression and anxiety as best as I can. I have never thought that something like this could happen to me, I was always a calm person. But ever since my husband died two years ago I cannot get a hold of myself. It started like a regular depression that came and went but now it is a full time condition. Since I have been taking Paxil, I am starting to feel much better. Can you take Paxil sporadically? I mean, do I have to take it when I'm feeling fine?

Depression :: I Built Up A Tolerance To Paxil

I figured I had OCD but not that bad and I suffered from anxiety and depression on and off all of my life. But, this latest illness really got me feeling very anxious and depressed. I tried Paxil but I built up a tolerance to it. After some time, like months of dealing with this for quite some time, I finally ran upon Lexapro; Which from what I've read works well. Why has this hit me later in life like this I'm 59 and appear mid forty's. My question is why have I got so ill with anxiety and depression this time? I have lost a lot of weight as well. Hoping this lexapro works for me. And why has this happened to me now so bad? I dread every day. Can anyone one respond to this?

I actually dread every day, the only time I feel a bit better is at night, but the next morning there it is - anxiety and depression. No relief till this new medication (Lexapro) kicks in. I'm exhausted.

And yes I have xanax, but if I take one in the day it puts me to sleep and I wake up with a panic attack from hell. But at night I take a xanax and can fall off to sleep and sleep 8 hours but I have wild dreams. Hope someone can respond to this...sorry for all the information just wanted to make it all clear up front.

Antidepressants :: First Time Seizure Paxil

I took Paxil for panic attacks three years ago for 30 days and then again for a year. Now, I am reaching third week without Paxil. I heard that the longer it took a person to become used to it at the beginning the longer it takes to withdraw and I am very worried if this is true. I feel nausea, seizures and dizziness. I need something to relieve the symptoms of Paxil withdrawal. This is the first time I have this experience with medication.
