Paxil was an answer to my prayers. My first dose tripped me out, by that I mean my teeth chattered, hands shook, and I felt sick. I eventually got used to it and the only side effects that stayed were a mild teeth chatter, dilated pupils, decreased appetite and some trouble going to sleep at night. When Paxil finally got in my system, I felt like me again. I felt like things would be okay and that I didn't need to stress out so much about the little things. I would take it again if I needed to. It sure helped me feel normal and that is a great feeling!
