Yea the weight gaining thing was the big problem with Paxil.I gained 15 pound in 3 weeks and I was only on it for 5 weeks.It also messed up my sex drive.Ater all that it did nothing what so ever for me.At least I had no problem stopping it cold turkey.

i took paxil on and off for a few years, i took it for depression rather than sp. It generally lifts your mood over a period of about 4 weeks, i never experienced any side effects with it other than not being able to orgasm, which is stupidly frustrating!!!
you can ask your doc to start you on a really low dose and see how you go with it.
I`ve just started taking cipralex wich has been worrying me intensly because of the side effects, it is a worry so if you have any concerns you know trhere are plenty of people on hear to offer support
