She has been on Paxil 10 mg for many years, her Primary doc has increased to 20 mg tomorrow. Has had many TIAs in the past and continue to do so now in the present. She takes Xanax for anxiety and when she comes down from the anxiety it's almost like she goes in a manic episode for about a week. Primary wants her to see a geriatric psych soon.
Years ago doctor tried to wean my mom off Paxil and she just couldn't do it because it caused her bad headaches. I'm waiting to hear from her neurologist to get his opinion, does anyone out there have any experience with this or advice?
