Hey I just got a script for paxil cr 12.5 but I hate meds (read my post to understand my situation)Ive herd nothing but HORROR STORIES about it,could you tell me any affects youve had on the 12mgs it would be helpfull and good luck to you.
I was taking Lexapro since September and was doing fine with social anxiety and stuff but it was not helping my ocd that much. I was taking 20 mg of Lexapro. I recently started taking PAxil CR 12.5 for one more day and then I start 25 mgs. I have been very tired also but I am able to get through it. I remember when I started taking the Lexapro the same thing happen but after about 6 weeks I adjusted. I have been taking the Paxil at night and although it is tough to get up in the morning it is fine once you get moving. Stick with it you will be happy after about 6 weeks when you side effects subside and you a happier overall person.
i was very fatigued for the first several weeks on paxil and them it subsided and i went back to my normal energy levels. i felt a great deal of relief from paxil and would have stayed on it for longer except i had other side effects which i decided i couldn't live with after about 4 months-- weight gain and sexual side effects. one thing though-- if you're still feeling very tired, why is your doctor increasing your dosage? seems like you should be sticking with the lower dosage until some of the side effects start to subside, no?
