Does Paxil Make You Feel Like A Zombie
If Lexapro and celexa make you really sick (diarreah, nausea, insomnia and feeling like a zombie), will Paxil (paroxetine) also make you sick.
I switched from paxil 40mg to lexapro10mg 3 weeks ago. I feel like I'm not taking anything at all now. Are these meds equivalent?
Probably not: 10mg of Lexapro is most likely about half the dose of the Paxil 40mg that you were taking but it depends on how your body handles each of them. Paxil in particular also leaves your body very quickly so after 3 weeks there in no more Paxil left. You will probably need to increase your Lexapro dose of you are feeling nothing from 10mg. ...Read more
I have been on Paxil (paroxetine) twice before. Now is my 3rd time. 4 weeks in, i can't see a difference like before. Has my system got used to it?
Perhaps Call yr doc: There is fairly good data that if one sri (the family of medications that Paxil (paroxetine) is in) doesn't work, another member of that family may help (prozac, zoloft, celexa). There are also many other options in terms of medications for anxiety and depression.

Is it bad to miss weeks of Paxil (paroxetine) then start back up i've been doing that do a while now i've been off Paxil (paroxetine) for like 2 weeks again and i'm getting bad?
It's unhelpful: It's bad to start and stop Paxil (paroxetine) repeatedly. If it helps depression, it should be taken for a number of months continuously. On the other hand, if it isn't working or causes intolerable side-effects it shouldn't be taken at all. Going back and forth is the worst of both worlds. Talk to your doctor about why you take it, and any problems it causes you. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
