Hello, I saw your subject line. I normally post on the Brest Cancer forum. I have taken Paxil off and on for several years, not for depression, but for anxiety and a little OCD. I thought this was primarily what this was for, but my medical oncologist prescribed this for me for "depression". I did not believe that I was "depressed" (was actually angry at her). It has calmed me down.
Like the others said, I would call my doctor -- perhaps Paxil is not for you and you need some other med.
