Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 year ago):
i wonder if the thyroxine coud create parkinsons like symptoms as i was taking it one year before i became diagnosed. Also what about stress related symptoms. i havent had an AIDS test for years either.
Can you answer these questions (what is this?):
- By patita: Could paxil long use (more than 10 years) be causing parkinsonism
I have been taking Paxil during about 12 years s/o stopping prescribed for my chronic depression. 5 years ago I was diagnosed parkinson disease. I have always wondered if Paxil could have caused it.
- By Pete : Can taking amoxicillin 500 mg with paxil 40 mg have side effects. like increase depression.
Been taking 40mg Paxil and dentist just prescribed 500mg Amoxicillin. My depression seems to have increased and had a major anxiety attack. Has anyone had similar experiences with this combination of drugs?
- By tealady: Is trazodone as opposed to paxil better for menopause symptoms?
Does Trazodone or Paxil offer better relief for menopause & insomnia? I am currently using Trazodone & am reluctant & frightened to switch to Paxil, which my current Dr. is prescribing. Please offer advice.
