I just started taking Paxil and I can't sleep. I'm extremely restless and jittery. I have been feeling light headed and dizzy every time I yawn, which is about 5 times per minute. I can't focus on anything and feel a great amount of adrenaline rushing through my body but don't have the will power to use any of this energy. This drug was prescribed because I couldn't sleep and since taking it I've been feeling worse!
Not familiar with Paxil being used only for sleep. It will help with anxiety and depression which can cause sleeplessness. It can cause the side effects you describe which generally subside in the first couple of weeks. If the side effects become unbearable, contact the doctor and maybe they can make an adjustment in the dosage or try you on something different.
