In general, switching from one antidepressant to another should go as slowly as necessary so side effects are minimal to none and your symptoms (? anxiety or depression) remain stable or improved. You may even need to back-step if you're feeling worse and review with prescribing doc. You need careful medical supervision to switch these meds. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Depends: Most patients do not experience side effects. For those that do, increasing the dose can lead to fear and reluctance. I always counsel patients, about to increase their medication, to recall any side effects when they started the med. They should expect the same side effects but to a lesser degree and shorter time. This occurs because the relative change in dose is smaller with each increase. ...Read more
Agitation, nausea: headache, "altered" sense of surroundings, weight gain, decreased libido, retarded ejaculation, sleep problems and some of the first ones that come to mind. What worries me more is when patients stop taking Paxil abruptly, and have "brain zaps" and a cluster of intense flu-like symptoms. (This can also occur with Effexor, (venlafaxine) Cymbalta and to a lesser extent with Celexa and Zoloft). Go to a PDR. ...Read more
