> Looking for help here .... My friend Paul has lost his job and lost his home. He was staying with his brother recently, but his brother "threw him out" on Memorial Day. Paul called me and could barely talk for the weeping. He is living in the woods (at least water and fire wood are plentiful), but everything seems particularly bleak and difficult due to his having lost his Paxil and being without for probably seven days or so. Because he is a Vietnam vet, I suggested he contact the VA to find out about temporary housing and/or to get his Rx renewed. I don't know if he'll be functional enough to make that contact .... Does anyone know about detoxing off of Paxil? Any other suggestions? 1100 miles away and worried. Thanks, Temmie

An idiot pdoc had me go off Paxil cold turkey (I reported him to the insurance company). I had dizzy-woozy spells, problems walking in a straight line, felt all foggy. Basically like I was doped-up. This is a bad situation for your friend if he's by himself in the woods! If he can't get to a VA hospital he might want to consider a regular one - it will depend on how bad he was before the Paxil.
I wish Paul lots of luck - I can't imagine going through Paxil withdrawal without a home and family support. :(
