Hi Cindy,

just out of curiosity... why did you stop the Paxil? Was it just not working well anymore? I was taking zoloft (for depression) and after about 5 years it just wasn't doing the job anymore. I tried to go on Cymbalta, but kaiser wouldn't pay for it, so I went on something close (Effexor). So far it's going well. PTSD is kind of a different animal than just plain old depression. I would do as others suggest and talk to your doctor about your experience so far. In my unprofessional opinion, it sounds like you've had enough time to adjust and maybe it's just not the right thing for you. But ask your doctor.

Good luck!
