Unfortunately, you are experiencing common side effects of paroxetine. These side effects should subside within the first couple of weeks of treatment. If they do not please consult the prescribing doctor.
Hello Lostmerc. The side effects will diminish the longer you take the drug. I suggest and its recommened you take it at bedtime as it will make you sleepy, and drowsy. The inability to not fall asleep will be reversed the longer you remain on the drug. Number one issue to taking it is weight gain. Most people taking Paroxetine do gain some weight. Regards, pledge
