Welcome to Just Answer !
Well, it seems that definitely you are suffering from what we call as SSRI Discontinuation syndrome( Withdrawl syndrome) , as the characterstic Electric shock sensations of SSRI witthdrawl syndrome are being experienced by you. All these withdrawl symptoms have stemmed from the fact that , your psychiatrist did
a fairly fast paced withdrawl of Paxil , which ideally should have been carried out over 1-2 weeks , due to this fast tapering of paxil , you are experiencing these symptoms , i believe you will have to bear these symptoms for 1 more week or so , before they subside on their own , i would have suggested you to start on a low dose of fluoxetine to help you cope up with your withdrawl symptoms , but right now i think against use of it ,as you are already on another SSRI anti derpresant celexa ( citalopram ) , and adding another ssri such as fluoxetine will make matters worse.
So, as of now for short term relief from electric shock symptoms , unfortunately you will have to endure it for 1 more wek and i am sure they will subside on their own ,but please do not commit the same mistake again by tapering celexa and klonopin over three days , as directed by your psychiatrist , as this will further add
to the already existing withdrawl symptoms , the withdrawl of celexa should be carried out over a period of 1-2 weeks , for a safe withdrawl.
As for klonopin , reduce the night dose first by 0.125 mg every day ( take three fourth of a 0.5 mg klonopin tab 1 st night, while continuing on 0.5 mg dose in morning, then half tab of 0.5 mg that is 0.25 mg on 2nd night , and again continuing on 0.5 mg morning dose, then 0.125 ( half 0.25 mg tab) on 3rd night , and finally stopping the night klonopin dose on 4 th night , and from 5 th day taper the morning dose by .125 mg , similar to as done during night tapering , so in a week's time you will be safely off from klonopin.
Meanwhile carry out a slow withdrwal of celexa over 2 weeks or so.
You may continue on Ambien , that will be helpful for your insomnia .
In the long term , i would ask you to refer to a new psychiatrist as these withdrawl tactics are basic knowledge for a psychiatrist to know , and unfortunately your psychiatrist does not give too much importance to the withdrawl symptoms.
