Comment:
I have been taking paxil for several yrs now. At first it worked great. Now I always feel tired. I'm never hungry, therefore I have lost weight. My vision has gotten worse and I bruise very easily. I recently decided to stop taking it. Now I am having severe withdrawls! The withdrawls almost make me want to start the rx again, unfortunately.
