Re: Paxil verses Paxil cr
I am currently on Paxil cr. I have not had any significant side effects, other than a small headache and drowsiness. Although, that could be due to the xanax I also take. I was previously on effexor xr for about 2 years and I went into a major depressive episode a couple of weeks ago, they increased my med to 150 mg but the depression go worse, so they switched me to paxil cr. It seems to have helped although i've only been on it for four days now. I have been on a numerous amount of ads, and have not really had any significant side effects on any of them. I did have problems on prozac with hair loss and that was about it. I think the weight gain problem just depends on your body chemistry and how you metabolism works. I usually do not have much of an appetite when I am depressed. The meds definetley help with that, but I do try to watch what I eat and keep portions in moderation.
