Im taking paxil,lithium, and trazodone i have been taking trazodone but the others im kinda worried about. If you have taken these medications before would you please let me know any side effects you had from them. I am taken these meds for bipolar, ocd, postramatic distress disorder, borderline personalitys, and panic disorder.

Paxil makes me manic (no psychotic features) after about 3 doses.  No other side effects from it.  Lamictal has controlled my panic and much of my anxiety.  Klonopin has worked for anxiety too.  I still have sporatic/rare issues with mixed episodes though and the anxiety and panic is really bad then.

I haven't been on the other 2.

I am a Pharmacy Tech.  People don't always have all of the possible side effects and some meds will balance each other out. 
Paxil:
nervousness
drowsiness
dizziness
mild nausea
constipation
decrease sex drive
increased yawning
I took it and I did have a decreased sex drive but nothing else. It worked very well for depression.
Lithium:
Is the most commonly prescribed medication for Mania.  It's been around for a long time.
Mild tremor
weakness
mild nauseau or lack of appetite, stomache upset
itching skin
thinning or drying of hair
weight gain

    I've been taking Lithium for 20 years. It was probably one of the first mediations used to treat bi-polar disorder. In the past it did cause stomach upset if not taken
    with food. Now there is a time released Lithium that doesn't cause that problem.
    No medication will cure bi-polar disorder but my mood swings have been less
    severe. Lithium requires regular bloodwork to test the level in your system.

    I think I'm fortunate that Lithium has worked so well for me. My 18 year old son is being
    treated for bi-polar disorder, OCD and anxiety disorder and he's been on many different
    medications, none of which have helped him much.
    Good luck to you. Sometimes it just seems to be trail and error.
