Agree paroxtine is a older drug. Mainly aimed at anxiety. I've been on it for 15 years maybe more. They always say up the dose when the low moods come. I do but always return to original dose. It does take away one's emotion. Kinda feel flat not sad not happy, emotionless.Thanks and best wishes to you too, I tried to get off it about a year ago which didn’t go great (went a bit loopy shall we say with very bad side effects), I felt I’d lost all my emotions etc as a result of taking this medication for around ten years, I’ve now decided I’m better on it than off it, it’s still a hard road mind you. I think mental health in men is huge at the minute, seems to be a lot of younger guys not being able to reach out in time.
But by playing about with dosage dependant on my mental health, I remain on my original dosage and lead a naw bad lifestyle. GPs are not generally that switched on with mental health. Pills is nearly always the answer. But it is improving very slowly.
So I took ownership of myself.
Men generally don't talk, about such things. But we should, the days of being macho etc and doing it alone should be gone.
The stigma still exists, so I'm open and challange this on every occasion. Young men are a challange, and sadly too many get lost. I think as a young man I didn't really understand myself. Maturity does bring a ability to reflect as it where.
Maybe just maybe if one young guy or girl reads this exchange between us. Then they may reach out.
