    I use to be on 40mg of Paxil but I told my doctor it wasn't helping me enough & I wanted to try other things. I was then diagnosed with Bipolar & prescribed 250mg Divalproex. Tried it for over a month & it made me SICK. I go to search up more about it & find out it's mainly for Epilepsy but can be used for Bipolar. I had to stop taking it though. Now they're wanting to try me on a bunch of random stuff at one time but I don't want that because medicine costs too much & I can't afford it even with my father's Insurance so I've thought of just going back on Paxil just to be on SOMETHING. I just said it wasn't helping me enough but it did help me A LITTLE.

    I will warn you about something though... If you ever decide to stop taking Paxil, I suggest cutting down your dosage slowly because I was just taken off of it all-together & the withdrawal symptoms were MURDER to me. Migraine, Vomiting, Trembling, Cramps & Fever. Pretty much what all Divalproex was doing to me the entire time I was on it. Then when I went off of it I felt myself again. I figured over a month was enough time to give it so now I'm on nothing at the moment but I need something cause I've been having episodes really bad.

    I've been on and off Lexapro (10mg) for the past 10 years or so.
    I take Klonopin whenever I feel like I'm about to have a panic attack, but those are becoming more and more rare.
