Seroxat Withdrawal

Well that is GlaxoSmithKline's take on withdrawal... or 'discontinuation' as they like to label it.

Now, here's what people taking the drug have reported:

- Intense insomnia
- Extraordinarily vivid dreams
- Extreme confusion during waking hours
- Intense fear of losing your sanity
- Steady feeling of existing outside of reality as you know it (referred to as depersonalization at times)
- Memory and concentration problems
- Panic Attacks (even if you never had one before)
- Severe mood swings, esp.heightened irritability/anger.
- Suicidal thoughts
- Homicidal thoughts
- An unconventional dizziness/vertigo
- The feeling of shocks, similar to electric ones, running the length of your body
- An unsteady gait
- Slurred speech
- Headaches
- Profuse sweating, esp. at night
- Muscle cramps
- Blurred vision
- Breaking out in tears.
- Hypersensitivity to motion, sounds, smells.
- Decreased appetite
- Nausea
- Abdominal cramping, diarrhea
- Loss of appetite
