- Paxil cause osteoporosis?
I had OCD since age 8. At 42 I was finally diagnosed and put on Paxil. When I reached 40 mgs and after 2 months on 40 mgs i was completely cured of OCD. I stayed on Paxil for the next 15 years. I no longer take any SSRI as they were causing severe lethargy that last few years of use. When I was around 47 I broke my wrist and then learned I was close to full blown osteoporosis. Five years ago I broke my humerus and then found that not only did I have osteoporosis but to a degree of a woman of 80. I had Prolia infusion 2 years ago and it reversed my bone loss. Last year my density test showed I was losing bone again and I had a Reclast infusion. I will not know if this has helped until next year. I am fairly sure that the Paxil had some fault in my osteoporosis although I know that my vitamin D levels are very low even after 50,000 units a week. I am not sure if is a combination effect of Paxil and low vitamin D that caused premature osteoporosis. No one in my family has had osteoporosis and no one that I am aware of has taken a SSRI.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 days ago):
I experienced signs of pregnancy about two weeks ago...thick white vaginal discharge for about a week and a half, very sore and tender nipples, extreme fatigue. Now I woke up soaked in blood, even after putting a SUPER tampon in before bed. The cramps have been really intense as well. Could this be a miscarriage? I never took a pregnancy test.
From this study (5 days ago):
Had been taking all three for years. My depression has been worse. My dr suggested I go off decongestant medicine because long term use causes swelling in the sinuses. After a few days of not taking it, my depression has improved significantly.
From this study (1 week ago):
30 year old female on Vivitrol for opioid cravings, Prozac 60 mg for Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, Ritalin 50 mg, (just switched from vyvanse), Junel for birth control, just recently lost 15 pounds after switching from Suboxone to vivitrol treatment, recently discontinued Ateneol and Lisiniprol because I kept getting low blood pressure reads, also recently discontinued Trazadone because I do not want my body to become dependent.
