Paxil increased my appetite to an outrageous amount. I would wake up in the night starving. I gained twenty pounds in three months. Never felt good on it. Doc told me to stick with it. Dropped weight immediately after stopping it. Replaced with Wellbutrin. MUCH better.

Comment:
After trying many other antidepressants (Prozac, Zoloft, Celexa) My doctor finally prescribed Paxil. What a difference. No side effects what so ever, and my head finally feels "clear", I feel "back to normal" again. So far, I have not had a down day. Can only hope that continues.
