I suffer from MDD And panic attacks. A couple of months ago I stopped Remeron because of a substantial weight gain (30 lbs in 10 mos) and unbearable dry mouth. Dr put me on Latuda which resulted in severe vomiting so we switched to Paxil because of its low suicidal ideation in adults. With the first dose I noticed a difference. However after the second dose I did nothing but sleep (and had no appetite whatsoever). After the 5th day I stopped using the Paxil. After a week I thought I would give it another try. Same thing happened, I did nothing but sleep so I stopped again. Is excessive sleepiness a relatively common side affect and if so, how long does it usually last?
