I post on the Crohns thread and find it to be a great support network. This post is for my husband though, who has panic disorder. He has been taking Paxil 15mg for 3 yrs. He is tired of many of the side effects and is thinking of switiching to Lexapro which looked more promising. He has tried to wean from Paxil before but stopped due to the withdrawl symptoms. Any feedback on Lexapro and panic. Also, how does one wean from one drug to another? Do you start the lexapro with the paxil to decrease withdrawl? Of course he needs to see his MD to advise him but we wanted to know what your experinces are also. thanks in advance !!
