paxil side effect

I have found that paxil is causing constipation does anyone have any suggestions other than using a laxative? Does drinking lots of water really help? I usually drink about 5 cups of tea/coffee per day, Thanks guys.

Re: paxil side effect

Unfortunately, I had the same problem on Paxil. I drink 5 or more cups of tea, and some water. It's annoying; Zoloft gives the opposite sometimes, but that's a fairly common side effect of Paxil.

Ditto. Lotsa water, and metamucil every few days. Helps me counteract 60 mg of paxil.
