Will Paxil always make me feel like this cuz right now i'm so sleepy i can't even function, and how long does it linger in the system i?

I am currently taking Paxil 40 mg. My new psychiatrist wants to put me on pristiq in addition. Will this make me feel better?

The best thing to do is to keep working with your psychiatrist as there are many combinations of medications. Also consider psychotherapy along with medication, as the two together can be more effective. Hope this answer helps. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
