Paroxetine Withdrawal

Paroxetine Withdrawal

This entry was posted in Antidepressant on by .

Paroxetine withdrawal symptoms respond well to our safe treatment protocols that are available at the Alternative to Meds Center in Sedona, Arizona.

This SSRI drug has a specious reputation after coming under fire by the US Dept. of Justice. The court handed out a massive $3 Billion fine for falsely promoting the drug as a safe antidepressant for adolescents, when the company withheld research which showed the exact opposite. When the truth was revealed, that the drug causes under-18’s to suffer suicidal thinking and behavior, the fine was levied, and the courts forced GSK to put the required black box warning on the package.

Pharmaceutical companies are required to meet strict FDA criteria before it approves drugs for sale to the public. So, it can be difficult to understand just how a major deception such as this could have ever happened. In part, it may point to the fact that the FDA does not actually do any of the drug testings, but relies upon the drug manufacturer for information from drug trials that it does in its own labs, and on its own products. Tragically, in this case, many children and teens were harmed by the false and misleading information that got the drug approved.

The manufacturers of pharmaceutical drugs, much like processed food companies, are allowed to do their own “in-house” safety investigations and oversight. And if they are not telling the truth, they can be sued. But that can never adequately compensate for harming any consumer, whether a child, teen or adult.

Consumers should attempt to investigate any drug before beginning a prescription. For example, Paroxetine has among the highest incidence rates and severity of withdrawal symptoms of any of the medications in its classification (SSRI). Paroxetine is the most potent and most selective serotonin inhibiting drug on the market. Because drug manufacturers do not always reveal all the details that may cause concerns about their products, one is advised to research any drug before agreeing to a prescription carefully.

The Alternative to Meds Center Program for Paroxetine Withdrawal

Our luxurious residential facility resides very near the beautiful surrounding Red Rock Mountains, providing many hiking trails and scenic views for our clients. We make sure the residence and clinic are toxin-free environments, where no harsh chemicals or neurotoxic cleaning products are used or stored, and our water and air filtration systems are the best and cleanest in the world.

Our delicious menus (including the fresh, tailored smoothies) are prepared lovingly by our gourmet chef, who has trained in and creates his works of “food art” within orthomolecular and nutritional guidelines. As food provides vital nutrients needed for healing and repair, this is a fundamental whose importance is often overlooked. During their tailored program, our clients receive a multitude of holistic therapies which provide ongoing improvements in physical comfort, pain relief, better sleep and reduced stress. These include mineral baths, acupuncture, cranial sacral massage, yoga classes, therapeutic massage, nebulized glutathione treatments, and many more.

The cleanse phase of the program tests for and then removes accumulated neurotoxins from the body, which also supports improvements in sleep, appetite, energy, and general well-being. Once the client is sleeping better, has improved their appetite, and increased their energy levels, then the taper phase can begin. This multi-phase program has allowed thousands of our clients to safely and comfortably withdraw from prescription medications.

Withdrawals Without Treatment Can Be Debilitating

Noone should ever abruptly stop taking an SSRI drug, as to do so can be life-threatening, and can cause the withdrawal symptoms to linger for a very long time. The best way to avoid these risks is to initiate a gradual tapering program, such as the program offered by the Alternative to Meds Center. With careful and thorough preparation, our clients can avoid the following withdrawal discontinuation symptoms of Paroxetine:

  • brain zaps
  • suicidal ideation, suicidal behavior
  • deepened depression, hopeless feelings
  • anxiety
  • panic attacks
  • mood swings
  • crying spells
  • dizziness
  • vertigo
  • nausea
  • insomnia
  • nightmares, unusual dreams
