Looking for someone who is also prescribe this medication
I had dry mouth, headache, and jaw clenching with 10 mg Paxil. However, some people are not as sensitive & have no SEs. They say it take from 2 to 8 weeks to feel its effect to lift depression. After 2 weeks I quit taking it because my teeth hurt. I may go back on it & give it at least 6 weeks to see if it works. How many mgs are you taking? Also, fatigue is a SE & that is why some people take it at nite. SEs should lessen over time. The startup can be hard. I should of had more patience w/this med. I was also supposed to have upped to 20 mg after a week.
