Thinking of using Paxil again

Recommended Posts

I haven’t posted on here in years.  I thought I was doing quite well, but lately I haven’t been sleeping well as a result of poor sleeping habits mixed with worry and stress.

I think I’ve always had trouble sleeping.  I don’t know why.  I used to see a psychologist / psychiatrist and had a prescription for Paxil, but I quit taking it because I normally don’t like taking medication like that.  I think that subconsciously, it would make me feel weak or like a failure.  Like I have to rely on an outside source to function like the rest of the world.

I’m currently not under the care of anyone, but I have left over Paxil from a few years ago that I never used.  Maybe 20 or 30 pills.  Would it be advised to take those as a crutch if I’ve been feeling down lately?  I don’t know if my insurance would cover seeing a professional.  I’ve never been good at therapy either.  Maybe I’m just too lazy.  I don’t know.  Thank you in advance for your responses.
