Ive been experiencing depression and fighting anxiety since a very young age. Finally at 17 the doctors agreed to give medication a try.. I have honestly take every anti-depressant offered.. Today they gave me paxil to try.. I'm nervous about it bc all of the other medications made me lose my personality. I work with the public and that didn't help! I would like as much feed back on paxil as possible. The good the bad and the ugly. I fear weight gain/ weight loss, "zombie" like personality, and I'm afraid it won't help. My panic attacks have become too frequent and those of you who have those understand how scary and unbearable they can be! I'm so tired of being put on medication after medication but something has to give and something has to work!! Feel free to give me any and all "straight forward" advice.
