Hi sweetie, I have been taking paxil for about 6 years, and yes it caused me to gain weight. It also took away all desires for sex. I also take phentermine. I could not find a doctor to prescribe it so I order it online and it has helped me to lose alot of weight. but your right, after a while taking 1 just doesn'st have the same effect it used to. I now sometimes take 3 or 4 a day. I know your not suppose to, but after a while your body gets immuned to them and it takes more to get the same effect.
I just quit taking paxil a couple weeks ago and am now taking seroquel which has really helped me alot. and I don't seem to have any side effects from it. Hope I have helped in some way. write me back.
