Hello, this shows you how we are all so very different. I started on Paxil and it just put me to sleep!! I was changed to Effexor and got relief from severe depression nearly immediately. I have had such great luck with it. Strangely, it peps me up! I do not feel lazy or lethargic and can accomplish what I need to during the day whereas when I was depressed, I could not do a thing...or did not feel like doing a thing. I did go off of it once, about
4 yrs. ago..and other than being a little dizzy, it was not a bad reaction. When my depression returned, I went back on and am on 150 mg. and probably will be the rest of my life. It has changed my life for the better by 100%!! I don't like taking a pill like this every day, but life is so much better...I am thankful for the medication.
Does anyone have a good experience on Paxil?
