Comment:
After Prozac didn't work out due to side effects, my doctor prescribed Paxil. It had no side effects except some constipation, and since I have IBS with diarrhea, that was a welcome change! It kept me functional, but I never felt it truly eased my symptoms of depression, even at 50 mg./day. Maybe it helped a little, but it's hard to say.

Worst experience of my life. It made me severly depressed. I laid in bed for over a week. All I did was cry, pull my hair, and had a severe compulsions to take showers. 14 a day! and an internal itch that made me claw at my face. I couldnt explain the expreience I went through on this awful medicine that I wouldnt recommend to my worst enemy.

I have been using Paxil for about 11 years. It works well for me, although we added Wellbutrin about 5 years ago to combat the tiredness I had as a side effect.
