Are there any other moms out there on paxil?

I am on paxil and I was wondering what other moms think about it. How do they feel, do they feel better and what about coming off of it eventually?

  • I took it for a while after my son was born. It made me gain a good bit of weight, which didnt help with my anxiety, but it did help me it's hard to come off of though. I also took cymbalta and i was just tired all the time so i stopped taking it.

  • I was offered Paxil about 3-4 years ago but I refused after doing research. I eventually went on Cymbalta for about a year and came off it on my own.

  • I was on Paxil when I was 15 (sadly that was 16 yrs ago). The only thing I can remember was getting so nauseous in school because lunch was so late in the day.
