I don't know much about Paxil but I have gained quite a bit of weight. The fact that I started Paxil close to before the holidays didn't help. Now I have a good 15/20 pounds to lose and am suffering from high blood pressure because of al the weight that I gained on it.
I am not going to stop, though, because I have had good relief from bipolar depression and that's even worse than the weight gain. Bad depression is hell.
