Currently tapering down Paxil very slowly, started at 20mg, have been on 5mg for two weeks now. I’m doing ok but noticed my racing thoughts and overthinking coming back a little (might still be from lowering my dose). The main reason for stopping Paxil is the weight gain, I gained about 30lbs and I hate it.
If, in a few weeks/months, my anxiety gets worse again, I’d like to try different medication. I’ve heard and read about bupropion and it seems it could help with anxiety, without the weight gain. However i’ve also read alot of stories saying it could worsen anxiety/panic. If any of you could share your experience that’d be great!
