Hi Jan,
  Thanks for the tip about the anxiety meds... Wellbutrin? I'll have to mention that to my dr because I can't get this 30 pounds off for anything~!  I buy and sell hay now and buck sometimes up to 100 bales a day, (each bale weighs about 110 lbs...) and nothing is coming off!!!   Im not seriously overweight, but at 5'8" I should weigh about 145 lbs for my age and I weigh almost 180!!! I have never been this heavy and I just can't get it off. I'll definately mention this at my next appt. I wish I would have known how hard it is to get off these meds.. I would NEVER EVER EVER EVER started taking them in the first place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Thanks again for the tip!

Your welcome. good luck. I am sure with your Drs. help you can get off them. Paxil is one of the worst to get off of. I had such a rough time without my drs help. Head zaps, mood swings, the works. It was bad! BUT with drs help and welbutrin I did ok. Welbutrin is not as effective for me as paxil...but I will NEVER go back to paxil. The weight gain is just not worth it.
good luck keep me posted
