After nearly five years, I am trying to come off seroxat for the fourth time. I plan to keep a diary of my efforts and to discuss a few issues relating to the greed and lies of GSK, the makers of the drug, the woeful ignorance of the real effects of this drug amongst the medical fraternity and hope to find out what help is available to the thousands of people who struggle to come off it.

Return of the Palpitations
The plan is to stay at 4mg until the symptoms subside (which I trust they will). It's not constant and gets worse when I eat or drink and last time, it only lasted four days. I think I shall postpone my planned trip to the gym, though.
Last night's Panorama on seroxat and suicide in children is now available on their website http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/programmes/panorama/default.stm
There are also loads of post from users talking about their own experiences.
