My doc gave me paxil and abilify (aripiprazole), then the pharmacist said there is a major interaction and to not take them together. I see alot of ppl take these.

Hello,: Hello, there seems to be variable input on this issue. Phenylalanine is an essential Amino Acid which is converted into tyrosine. Tyrosine is then used to produce Dopamine and norepinephrine. Of course, both of these neurotransmitters are impacted by a number of psychotropic medications. Dpla is contraindicated with monoamine oxidase inhibitors and reportedly should not be used with atypical antipsychotics. The majority of sites recommended that d.L. Phenylalanine not be used concurrently with standard antidepressant medications. Several sites recommended that dlpa not be used with Paxil (paroxetine) or with stimulants. Use of dlpa can be associated with insomnia, headaches and increased blood pressure due to overstimulation of the central nervous system. I could not find any literature that addressed using dlpa with lithium. It should be noted that the fda does not regulate supplements and that dosages of the active ingredients are often not standardized. ...Read more

With your Docs help!: Ideally this should be done in conjunction with the prescribing physician. Stopping an antidepressant on your own is not a good idea. About 1/5 individuals experience discontinuation symptoms when coming off a ssri. Paxil (paroxetine) has a relatively short 1/2 life meaning it clear from the system fairly quickly. Generally the dose would be decreased gradually to the lowest possible dose before stopping. ...Read more

5-HT receptors: SSRI's like Paroxetine both activate or inhibit multiple serotinergic (5-HT), receptors. At least 4 of them regulate appetite and some anxiety and agitation (jitters). Side effects affect people somewhat differently. Some get a significant desirable antidepressant or other therapeutic goals, and some others experience side effects such as agitation or increased appetite and other undesirable SE's. ...Read more
Discontinuation: I assume you are experiencing a discontinuation syndrome from abruptly stopping the medication. This is characterized by flu-like symptoms, tingling in fingertips or a sense of derealization. Generally, these symptoms improve in 5 to 7 days. Although not the worst of the ssri's, Paxil (paroxetine) has a fairly strong discontinuation syndrome. Side effects produced while taking disappate w/in 7 to 14days of sto. ...Read more
