I have been suffering from severe anxiety disorder for the past two years. It all started with a severe panic attack then I was diagnosed with acute hypochondriac. I have been always worrying about my heart health and fearing that any time I may get an attack. This has reduced my quality of life considerably. I am on Paroxetine CR 12.5 mg one tablet a day for the past one year and it does helped me to cope up with my fear. I feel normal now but could not stop Paroxetine. I am getting withdrawal symptoms like dizziness, racing heart beat and high BP. I would like to gradually taper Paroxetine. Is Prozac a better option? Please help me.
