    Post Paxil and no energy

    Has any one had this problem? I have been on paxil for panic for over a month now. It is working great for me the only draw back that I see is that I have no energy.
    Paxil makes me tired and for me that was good because I was not sleeping. What can I do to get my energy back?
    I know when I was wellburtin I had a lot of energy but that was for depression at the time.

    its possible the paxil hasnt started working properly yet, try taking it before bed
    the dose may need adjusting
    otherwise wellbutrin usually also works for anxiety

    Hyr33,

    I have tried taking it at night but I was then unable to get myself up in the morning when I needed to.
    I felt druged or something. It is really heard to explain.
    I have noticed weight gain starting and that scares me because I need to lose not gain.
    Not sure what to do.

    EXACTLY! Thats jsut the way I am. I have been taking paxil cr for around 4 months and I have had the sames symtoms... I take mina about 6 in the evening and I cannot go to sleep till around 1 or 2 in the morning.. then I feel drugged and cant get up when I need to.I dont have any energy whatsoever. I think it is the paxil bothering me.
