Re: hello folks.....

:welcome: to PsychLinks, Johnny! We're glad you're here. :)

It sounds as though you've had a rough time. Depression, anxiety and OCD aren't easy to deal with, as many here can attest. You're certainly not alone with your feelings.

As to being addicted to Paxil, you're not really addicted to it, since it's not addictive in the normal sense of the word. However, it might be that another medication would work better for you. New medications have been made available since Paxil, and some of them seem to work better for many people and have fewer side-effects.

Are you in therapy at the present time? If not, that's probably something else you should consider. Medication alone is not the best way to handle the problems you're faced with. Medication with ongoing therapy works much better. :hug:

Re: hello folks.....

:welcome: johnny, nice to meet you. sorry to hear about your struggles. i think thatlady made some good comments regarding medication. you may want to talk to your doctor about where you're at and see if a change is warranted. also therapy would be highly beneficial. you can start to feel better, it's possible, i've gone through depression and was at a very low low, i was able to come out of it, so do not give up hope. it takes work and perseverance but it can be done.
