Hello! I see you are from Philadelphia...I am from Allentown, PA. It's nice to have someone to talk to who is somewhat "local".

As for the meds - I was on 10 mg Paxil for 3 1/2 years and it worked out great. Only 1 or 2 short DP episodes. My problem was that I weaned myself off of it earlier this year thinking I would be ok...BIG MISTAKE. The DP came back worse. I started back taking 10mg of Paxil, but it wasn't working anymore. The doctor upped my dosage to 20mg now. Seems to be a tad better, but still waiting to see.

SSRIs aren't the "cure all" but seem to be the drug type of choice by psychiatrists and doctors for this. Personally, I don't think this disorder has anything to do with seratonin, but the Paxil does lessen my overall anxiety. And as well know, DP is not anxiety - it's another beast in and of itself.

If you want my home e-mail, let me know, since we live so close.

Pittsburgh WHAT?!

Just kiddin'. I use klonopin when I get real worked up but it's like my "emergency stash". It doesn't eliminate the DP, just makes me not really mind it as much.
