I've been on Paxil for about 2 weeks now, and I have had the worst headaches of my life on it. Has anyone else experienced this? Feels more like a skull headache, rather than inside.
I called and told my doctor about it, and he told me to just stop taking it, and to go to the ER if my headaches persist.
I'm sick of being a guinea pig on meds until I find the right one. Ugh.
