All I want to do is sleep all day on 40mg of Paxil. I do drink wine before bed and have tried to stop, but can't sleep. I have been putting things off, like grocery shopping for days, because I rather lay down on the couch. Have not left house in 3 days. Been on 20 mg for 20 days and then on 40mg for the last 14 days. 34 days on Paxil and I feel so tired. Anxiousness is gone, but now I am lazy. Should I stay on this? Dr. gave me Ambin, I must walk in my sleep with it, because objects were moved in house and I don't remember anything my husband tells me happens at night. So no more Ambin, and hello wine. My ? is is my tiredness wine with the Paxil. If so What can I do to sleep? Tried taking Paxil at night but no difference than in the morning.

Hello yhwh11. I understand fully. I also am paxil, (paroxetine) 30mg. Also tired. Helps my anxiety though. What I do is cut my dose into 3,ther by , spliting it out through out my day. It helps to cut down on that fatique. You really wouldn't have that sleepy feeling as badly as you are now, or at least less of it.I wouldn't mix the two for any length of time, meaning the wine and paxil. Not a good idea considering you're on 40mg. What I take to help me sleep is remeron (mirtazapine) A hefty dose of it. Or try trazodone, not as strong as ambien, but effective to help you get some sleep, along with minimal side effects. I suspect your ambien was to strong a dose.best to you.pled
