Paxil Psychotic Event Required Hospitalization

“No one explained to me what happened.”

In November 2001 I was on Paxil. The drug was making it hard for me to concentrate and other effects… then one day I woke up from a horrible nightmare and ended up in the emergency room since I suffered a psychotic breakdown.

No one explained to me what happened. A year after the psychotic event the new psychiatrist told me Paxil can have a psychotic side effect in some people.

Since the hospitalization I was given more medicines to take daily. I’m suffering through withdrawal now. And I’m trying to get off one prescription.
