Keeton...My mom was on Paxil for years and had no problem with it. I was put on another SSRI two years ago (Lexapro) and although it helped somewhat with depression I gained a lot of weight and was emotionally stagnant. (I guess that's the point). My suggestion is if you do decide to go on it, to take into consideration that if for some reason you want to go off...the weaning process must be very very slow, over the course of months.
These class of drugs work differenly on everyone and I hope if you try it, you find relief.
