In reply to Paxil vs. Effexor XR, posted by JonW on October 14, 2002, at 0:16:21

Hi Jon. I have been on both and both seemed to be equally effective for anxiety, with Effexor XR more effective for depression.

Paxil had a severe effect on sex life. Could start but never finish the act!! Effexor still had some effect but not as much and has diminished slightly over the five weeks I have been on it.

I eventually stopped Paxil as it was causing depression due to what it did to my sex life. Paxil had less side effects though. Serzone actually improved my sex life but was not that effective for depression and caused me short-term memory problems.

Best of luck!!
