    Reviewed Paxilon 11/10/2020Worked well for many, many years - I slept beautifully - but after awhile developed gut sensitivity and resultant diarrhea and had to discontinue use.

    Reviewed paroxetineon 9/10/2020Gained 60lbs in 2 years on Paxil. It exacerbated my issues with apathy, hypersomnia, and sometimes worsened my depression. I became agoraphobic as well as quit personal grooming/maintaining hygiene. It exacerbated my Binge Eating Disorder and if I missed one pill I would feel as if I were down w/ a flu. It was the worst detox of my life, but as soon as I weaned off of it I dropped 53lbs in 6 months, began waking up early/naturally, felt happy/alert, and found myself again.

    Reviewed paroxetineon 1/7/2020For a depressed person I would say it’s at least 60% effective overall per day which is actually really big especially compared to going through suicidal ideation. No I’m still lazy I still don’t have great self-esteem but I don’t feel the exact same depth of helplessness that I was battling.problem the last 3 meds I’ve tried including this one have all giving me terrible diarrhea and I continue to deal with chronic diarrhea which really concerns me.
