How long has it been? How are things now? Are you glad you quit? I was on paxil for almost four years. I was prescribed them by my family doctor after complaining about anxiety issues that had popped up after quitting cigarettes. They got rid of my anxiety but turned me into a zombie that slept alot and felt nothing. I finally decided to quit, weaned myself off, and then experienced a pretty intense year after quitting. I now exercise regularly, eat healthy, and have really worked on controlling my thoughts, and trying to keep things simple. I feel back to normal and its great.
