You may have side effects from Paxil. There are a few things you should be aware of about Paroxetine (Paxil). It is known for a harsh withdrawal if you need to stop taking it. It may have side affects like weight gain and loss of libido that may not go away with time. It also was not rated high for an antidepressant but may work well for the spectrum of anxiety disorders. This does not mean any of the above could happen to you, only that it has a potential too.
You may want to talk to your doctor about some other antidepressants like Lexapro or Celexa as your first antidepressant to take unless he/she has other specific reasons other than depression for choosing Paxil as the first choice.
You have every right to question whether it is a good fit for you or not.
