I am a 41 year old female and I have been on both Paxil & Remeron for 9 months. After 1 month of taking these I started having severe muscle pain and weakness in my hips and legs. I also started swelling in my legs, feet and hands along with a dry mouth every morning. I also suffered from terrible stomach issues. This has since subsided but the leg pain and back pain and stomach issues are still pretty bad. I started weaning myself off the Paxil 7 days ago from 20 mg to 10mg. So far I have no significant issues other than dizziness that comes and goes. I just want to connect with others like me to offer support and encouraging words in our journey to get off these drugs or offer advice to those thinking about going on them
