I was on paxil for 2 years at 40mgs, I found it to work wonders with anxiety and panic and depressions, but the sideeffects of total loss of sex drive was too harsh for me, since I have to battle to have sex with hubs anyways, and the weight gain was too much too since I have horrid body issues, and couldnt stop the weight gain no matter how hard i dieted or exercised, i guess i have a problem with anything that gets out of my control..it really fustrates me, i wish they would make this drug so that it works like it does without the side effects and without the good emotions being numbed out as well as the others..I also had extremely hard withdrawls getting off the drug even through weaning, but all and all I dont totally regret taking it, just wish they could make something like it but fine tuned a little bit, I think it might be a step in the right direction, just not right for me personally..
