My doctor said that Paxil affects everyone differently. She said some people get really sleepy and others get more energy from it. I have a very, very hard time getting going in the morning (related to hypothyroidism) and can't decide whether to take it tonight, or wait until the morning. I just got the script today. Please tell me how it affects you, do you take it am or pm? suggestions? comments?
Hi: Paxil initially put me into this weird zone so the doctor suggested I take it at night and I have always done so, also I have massive problems when it comes to sleep and Paxil combined with my other meds help me fall asleep more easily. Hope this helps
I spent four weeks on Celexa before going to Paxil, it is hard to say I started at 20mg and currently take 50mg over the last five months or so. but I would say the average is 4 to 6 weeks for the full effect
it effects people diffrently but one of the big reasons they do not prescribe to people under 18 is it can cause an increase in suicide ideation and self harm during the first few weeks like other ADs in its class
