So paxil was a waste of time

I have been on paxil for 4 weeks now and feel no different. No side effects, no results..nothing. My doctor said paxil is one of the stronger meds,yet I feel nothing. I know not every pill works for people, but it is even possible to feel nothing on these pills? I thought I would maybe get bad side effects or something, but never did I think it wouldn't work at all. My main problem is that I have been eating and eating non stop because I have a compulsive eating problem. I thought pills would cure my depression/anxiety therefore curing my addiction...no such luck. I waited 4 weeks to find out no change happened. I am asking for wellbutrin...I believe that helps for weight loss and addictions.

You might want to try Prozac. It's prescribed for binge eating.
