10 mins or 2 1/2 hours...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Since taking the drug Paxil, what I used to do in ten minutes took me over 2 1/2 hours tonight.

I still have anxieties about when my brother had a 10:00 hours (10 am) business meeting at the WTC in NYC on 11 Sept 01 that he decided to miss.

I guess that is why what I, as a normal functioning 25 year old, would accomplish in 20 mins takes much, much longer.

One of the side effects of that antidepressant is sleepiness. When I'm particularly tired it takes me longer to do things as well, but not to the extreme you mention.

Personally, I'm not a firm believer in medication to treat depression. Paxil, in particular is rather evil in my opinion. While they say the drug is not habit forming, there have been plenty of studies that beg to differ. It seems like a proverbial atom bomb for depression, and as such, it's going to be a rough ride, especially when you're ready to get off of it.

But I'm not a doctor, but based on what I know about the drug, I'm not shocked by what you have said. Still, I don't believe antidepressants are the best form of treatment for depression, and if they are insisted upon, I'd try and stay away from Paxil. <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" />

Thank you for the reply. Mental health-care in the United States is so rediculous (i.e. it takes months in order to get an appointment) that I cannot just stop taking the drug.

As for more specifics, I was talking about orgasms. I tried to masturbate tonight and it took me over 2 1/2 hours to accomplish what I would have normally accomplished in less than 20 mins.

You can't paint all of the US in such a broad stroke. Our 4 or 5 doctors always gets us in within a day or two. Often times HOURS. Shop around.

Please don't start such drivel.
