Discussions that mention valium

Anxiety board


I have been taking paxil for about 10 years (also taken valium for over 30 years). I didn't experience any side effects when I started taking paxil, except for the sexual side effects. From reading the posts here, the sexual side effects from SSRIs also affect women.

Paxil didn't help my anxiety very much, and I think there are better SSRIs available, but that's just my opinion. Paxil can also be hard to quit taking even though it's not supposed to be addictive.
