Paxil was the first SSRI I tried (about
8 years ago) for my depression and anxiety and it worked great for me. Unfortunately, the side effects (weight gain and sexual) became a problem, so I weaned off and went to Prozac, which did not work well for me. I then switched to Zoloft which worked great too, but now it's pooping out on me.
I am slowly starting Lexapro now, while tapering Zoloft, so hopefully I will do well.
