Everyone has an opinon to all the drugs this is simply because everyones body is diffrent and drugs will of course do diffrent things to all of us.
You asked about Paxil and I will tell you my story with Paxil. I started taking paxil 3 years ago on 20 mg daily, I took it for 2 years and things seemed ok until a little over a year ago I had a personal crisis and my doctor uped my paxil to 50 mg. This was the beginning of a horrible time in my life. within 9 months i gained 65 lbs! It was like my metabolism stopped. I was so scared i treid to get off by weaning myself but I went crazy so I went back to the doctor who then put me on Lexapro to ease the edge but after 3 months of taking this i felt nothing and was still totally depressed, i then attempted to wean off and i did from lexapro after being 8 weeks free of drugs I could go No longer, I yelled daily at my kids , I fought my husband over everything imaginable including things like the blanket being messy on the bed, I went to the doctor and I am now on Effexor Xr, I wish i looked physically like I did 3-4 years ago before the weight gain. People say its the way you are eating but on this types of meds It DOES SLOW OR STOP some peoples metabolisms! So yea i would love to be 75lbs thinner but I am happy I am not biting everyones heads off and people can actually tolerate being around me so for that reason thank you antideppresents!
