I took Paxil (paroxetine) for 6 years (started at 20mg/day down to 10mg every 2nd day), switched to Cipralex 20mg 2 wks ago. Is it normal to have side effects?

I took Paxil (paroxetine) for 6 years (started at 20mg/day down to 10mg every 2nd day), switched to Cipralex 20mg 2 wks ago. Is it normal to have side effects?
