I have been withdrawing off of Paxil for about a month. The entire time I have been withdrawing, I have been binge eating. I have gained 4 pounds, which I could not afford to gain.
I have had a binge eating problem for most of my life so I know that withdrawing hasn’t caused me to eat uncontrollable. It is the stress of withdrawing. My body wants something to replace the missing Paxil and I am using food in its place.
I am almost done withdrawing and have done well with my eating yesterday and today. I also went to the gym this morning. I am going to begin yoga again as this actually curbs my appetite!
(Sigh) Life can be so tiring!
Remember, it does get better!
