Dear Curley,

I've been taking Paxil for several years. I found that it took the usual 7-10 days to create any lasting effect, but was glad I'd been patient about it, because I have had good results from it. My depression is the most under control that it's ever been, and I've been able to go down from my highest dose of 40 mg per day to 25 now. The 20 mg dose your doctor has prescribed is a lower one.

Good luck to you!

-P

Thank you both so much for the info.I called my Doctor today and ask if I could cut the doasage in half and he said that would be fine.At 5mg on the Valium it knocks me out.But the 2.5 dosage does not do that to me.

The reason that He changed up my meds is because my Insurance will only let me have five scripts and I have to pay for the rest.He did tell me that they are comeing out with a generic form of Zoloft and that he would start to wing me off of the Valium and then go back to the Zolof.

Thank you both for the info.
Thanks
