I have GAD and panic attacks which I hadn't felt the way I've been feeling in years, so I wasnt on any medication except for the occasional alprazolam here and there for a bad attack. But lately ive been feeling more and more anxious. My doctor prescribed paroxetine 20mg and I started to take them, but then I just felt like i was in a tunnel and so disconnected that I stopped taking them. Not to mention i read how hard it is to wean off that medication. Anyways, my doctor prescribed the 20 mg. And I took it for 3 days and stopped. This was last sunday on Easter. That was my last dose. The next day I felt fine but the following day I felt a lot of anxiety and have been having vivid crazy dreams I couldn't even sleep for 2 days maybe got a total 4 hrs sleep in those 2 days. My legs feel heavy and I've been having palpitations. Is this my anxiety, or could I be experiencing a but of withdrawl?
