I am sorry to hear that you are feeling bad again. I weaned off of Paxil also. The first time I tried, I tried taking my pills farther apart (like I would take them 36 hours apart rather than 24, then 48 hours apart, etc) that didn't work a bit! Quite quickly I was having anxiety again. The next time I tried I lowered my dose a little bit at a time and that worked wonderfully for me. Of course I am back on it now (off for a year then had a baby and back on). None of us can say what is causing your symptoms but it could be a number of things. It could be the weaning or it could be the anxiety coming back because you are getting off of it. I know that when I have my anxiety, I feel very helpless. It sounds like what you are describing. I become very depressed as a reaction to the anxiety. I instantly start thinking how am I going to go on like this, etc, etc. But once I get the anxiety under control, the depression fades. I think that sometimes when you suffer from anxiety, your brain is already in overdrive so when your anxiety rears it's ugly head then the brain starts moving and makes you sad because you are questioning everything, why can't I control this? Why can't I be normal? Why can't I just be happy? I have so many things to be happy about, why am I so sad? How can I take care of my kids/family/work/friends/hobbies like this? and on and on and on... and we can't just shut our brains off.. or maybe we would be less anxious! I feel for you, truely! Work through it. Take the Klonopin. If your doc says you can take 2, then take 2. If you need more help, call your doc (or your doc's after hours number, or go to a med center or ER if need be) When you get a handle on the anxiety then I think you will feel better. Take care of yourself and I hope that you feel much better and that when you post again it will be to say that you made it through and feel great!!!!
