Started taking paxil 10mg 3 days ago and am very uncomfortable with how it makes me feel. I am having a hard time eating from the nausea, i am zoning out randomly and sometimes actually feel like i am on drugs. I hate feeling this way and hope it goes away soon. Also... the day before i started taking the pill i was very, very ill with the flu and i think i should have waited to start taking this medicine until i was fully recovered. Just looking for opinions on how long side effects may last? Are these normal side effects or could it have something to do with the flu? Should i wait it out or call doc and consider an alternative?
