Paxil Withdrawal

The web site you are on now, The Road Back, offers information on how to get off Paxil, prevent Paxil withdrawal side effects as well as eliminating current Paxil side effects.

You will find on this site the complete book, How to Get Off Psychoactive Drugs Safely. Since 1999, over 40,000 people have now used this information to get off their antidepressant or other type of psychoactive medication.

Withdrawal off of Paxil does not have to be difficult and handling current Paxil side effects can be resolved quickly.

Note: If you are taking Paxil as well as an anti-anxiety medication (benzodiazepine), the anti-anxiety medication must be discontinued first. If you are only discontinuing the Paxil the Paxil must be reduced very slowly to prevent withdrawal side effects from the anti-anxiety drug. Paxil slows the metabolism rate of anti-anxiety drugs and when the Paxil is removed from the system the anti-anxiety medication will not take as long to metabolize and this creates a withdrawal effect from the anti-anxiety medication. See chapter 9 on the right side of each page for anti-anxiety medication procedures.

In May 2013, our program made its next leap forward and at this time; completely eliminating Paxil side effects is not only within our grasp, it is here.

Anxiety in the daytime, insomnia at night, the dreaded head symptoms common with Paxil withdrawal can now be a thing of the past.

There is quite a bit of information on our web site and if the ill effects from Paxil have you unable to read very much text, we can make this very quick and simple.

For head symptoms, even the electric brain zaps, taking the right type of omega 3 fish oil will eliminate them quickly. Take (1) Omega 3 Supreme TG in the morning and (1) more at noon. This is a must with Paxil.

If you have nausea, drink a couple cups of ginger tea each day.

If you have insomnia, take a supplement called Body Calm Supreme With Melatonin or Body Calm Supreme Melatonin Free. The one with melatonin is stronger. (You would take 1 capsule 15-minutes before bedtime)

If you have daytime anxiety, take Body Calm Daytime Relief. (Take 1 capsule every 2 to 4 hours during the daytime)

All of the Relax supplements are in a veggie capsule and dissolve within 15-minutes after swallowing.

A supplement called JNK Capsules was formulated to help reduce the over activation of a gene called JNK. The over activation of the JNK gene is the cause of antidepressant induced weight gain, diabetes and a host of Paxil side effects.

These supplements are manufactured and sold by Neuro Genetic Solutions. If you are in the United States or Canada the supplements are 50% off at the moment.

10% of the people wanting to get off Paxil do not make it because of the withdrawal side effects. Of the 90% that are able to get off Paxil, 50% will still suffer during the Paxil withdrawal. There is no need to suffer.
