Hi Amy, ya know it is weird that you are switching to me. Two months ago i switched from serzone to paxil.

I really had no weight gain with serzone, and it did help me with my depression. It did make me tired or fatigued though. So in order to avoid it i took my whole script at night shortly before bed, which was ok'ed by my Dr.

I had normal weight gain and loss while taking serzone - so that was good for me.

One side affect i did have that was very hard to control was the craving of alcohal - don't know why. Now being on paxil i rarely have any cravings for it thank God!!!

The reason i switched to paxil is my social phobias which are very strong.

A question for you; how did paxil help you as far as social phobias, that is if you had this problem.

Good Luck with your med change i know it's a struggle.

: Hi, I gained 30 pounds since I started taking Paxil 2 years ago for anxiety/panic symptoms. My doctor informed me that Paxil is the number one med that causes large weight gains!! Wish he had told me earlier. Anyway I'm weaning off Paxil and starting on Serzone. Would appreciate hearing from anyone having any experiences with Serzone? Anyone going from Paxil to Serzone? Any problems? Thanks!
