I'm sorry you are having a hard time! I don't take Paxil, but my sis-in-law does, and has for 4 years. I know she has been on the CR also, I just don't remember the dose. She recently had a relapse with her depression, and her doc raised her dose just a little, and she is much better now. Please remember that it takes some time for these meds to start working properly (believe me, I remember how hard it is waiting). Although sweating is a side effect of SSRI's, it surely is also a main one for premenopause! I have that problem also, but the hormone patch seems to help me (of course, I had a hysterectomy, so mine is definitely menopausal!). I'm hoping the higher dose will help you with some time, and please know that I will be thinking about
you! (((Big Hugs))),
