Not a very good idea to go off it abruptly. Any doctor will tell you to go off it very gradually. It takes about 4-5 weeks to get it out of your system completely. I went off it by taking a full pill every other day for a week. Then half a pill every day for a week. Then half a pill every other day for about 2 weeks...Then I just stopped taking them. You'll notice the first week or week and a half you'll feel quite screwed up. But this is the healthiest way otherwise it's like a drug addict just going off drugs completely without weening yourself off them.
Hi I take paxil also.Im not going off it but I been on it for a few years and I can tell you if I dont take it for a few days I feel like im going nuts I start to cry and I get upset easy.Anyone else get like that?How many mg do you take?I take 20 mg I think im hooked on it.
Well I am 16 and at the moment I am going off paxil. It made me gain 30 lbs since christmas..My docter told me to cut down and take one every night for 2 weeks and in the morning take wellbutrin. Since I am cutting down on my pills I have been so down latlkey I know it is normal when you are coming off of them but I just wanna cry and scream at ppl.
And I have a question..Does anyone know is wellbutrin makes you gain weight? Thanx
