I have taken Paxil on 3 diffrent occassions for depression. Each time I used it I was feeling better than normal again in about 2 weeks. Paxil helped to relieve my anxiety and helped me to be more outgoing. I wanted to be out and around people and problems werent so big anymore. The downside is it mad me sleepy ALL the time! I always gained weight ( the last time nearly 50 lbs) that didnt help my depression. Also It was murder on my sex life. Getting off Paxil is HELL!!! Vertigo, nausea, headache, heart palpatations, insomnia
