Been treated for depression, ADHD and anxiety since around the age of 20. Only taking 20 mg of Paxil now - Smoked for 15 years, stopped 12 months ago but now this seems to be more of a problem -the thing is I don't know for sure if I have it - I'm tasting and smelling bad tastes and smells from the inside a lot of times...just assuming others don't want hurt my feelings and tell me.
