  • Made orgasms more difficult, but saved me from crippling panic attacks. Worth it, but only if you really need to be on it.

    Panic disorder
  • Took Paxil for a little over two years. Changed my life. Was deeply depressed. Third week in I started feeling better. Life doesn't have to be so painful. No side effects for me.

  • It worked but the weight gain, sexual side effects and the sleep-induced state might not have been worth it....enjoyed the relief of depression, but am pre-diabetic and terrified of the weight gain pushing me over the edge.

  • works best for anxiety & panic -- not so much for depression

    Anxiety
  • Withdrawal is horrible and I only took a 20mg dose for about 3 months.

    Depression
  • It seemed to quit working, so I--under doctor's direction--tapered off, taking Prozac, supposedly to mitigate the withdrawal symptoms. But my withdrawal still consisted of 24-hour panic attacks and agoraphobia for several months.

    Depression
  • Outrageous weight gain - no problems like that with other antidepressants. Difficult to get off. Try something else unless this is a necessity.

  • Very severe reactions when I've been unable to refill my prescription. Not sure if my weight gain and tiredness is due to the medication.
