I'm Bob and I was prescribed Seroxat for work-related stress.
Like many of the other SSRi-type drugs, it suppressed my empathy - I didn't really care much about anything. Trying to come off it was a nightmare, it took me around 19 months to taper from 40mg per day to 22mg per day using the disgusting, vile-tasting liquid Seroxat.
On month 19 I decided enough was enough and went cold turkey (not recommended). It was possibly the worst three months of my life. Electric zaps jolting through my entire body, bizarre nightmares, profuse sweating, noise intolerance (that I still have to this day) and thoughts of harming others.
