Question Paroxetine Going Back To Paxil

I been taking paroxetine (20mg) recently for anxiety after taking brand name Paxil for long time but on Paroxetine I been feeling more anxious and lightheaded. Has anybody experience this on the generic version. I thinking going back to Paxil (brand Name) after I finish the paroxetine. I was wondering if there is side effect going back to brand name after taking generic version?

Let me know....

There should be no side effects from going back to the brand, as they're chemically indentical. The only thing that can legally be different between the brand and generic is the inactive ingredients (dyes, binders, etc). Since these substances aren't active ingredients, you should experience no side effects in switching.

There is ABSOLUTELY no difference in the Generic or Regular, even the CR versions were ABSOLUTELY identical except for the Controlled Release itself..


quick edit: spelled absolutely wrong..lol
