I had a very difficult weekend. My psychiatrist is wanting me to taper off of Paxil and start taking Zoloft. Right now I'm taking 20mg of Paxil and 50 mg of Zoloft. For a couple of weeks I've been going through withdrawal symptoms from an antidepressant like sweating profusely during sleep, brain zaps, headaches, etc. Last Friday I started feeling really down and I have no motivation to do anything. This last Saturday I started having dark thoughts like my children would be better off without me and I wanted to do something to end the pain. I have felt like isolating from my family, because they will just think I'm acting like a victim. I've also been crying at least once a day for the last three days. I have not felt this bad in a couple of years. I have a phone session tomorrow with my psychiatrist tomorrow morning. Has anyone else dealt with problems like this? Maybe we can help each other.
