Does anyone have any experience switching from generic Paxil to Paxil CR? I have been taking generic Paxil 10mg for 3 weeks now. It works well for me. The only problem I have is 45 minutes after I take the pill I feel agitated, a little jittery and more anxious until the pill settles in. I ALWAYS have to take a sedative 30 minutes before taking the Paxil to counteract this "stimulating" affect. I've been taking 25-50mg of Vistaril to counter this.I always take both at night a few hours before bed. I am going to ask my doctor about Paxil CR. I am hoping this will eliminate the initial affect I am experiencing from taking the pill.
Quite possible this would make a difference. Worth a chat with the doc.
Have you tried taking it in the morning. SSRIs are generally taken in the am because they have that effect.
