How was your switch. Side effects, and all!!!
Respectively, you may not have to wait so long. Your system already has a build up of Lexapro in it, so your Paxil may kick in sooner than the standard four weeks!
That is good news!!
(I've a brother that has taken Paxil for years and it is still quite efficacious for him, no problems, no weird side effects either. He is doing fantastic. Just thought I'd let you know about him. An effective med for someone in my family, and a good medication for so many people, theresa06!!)
Have a great evening, hope you begin to feel like yourself very soon,
Yes you will probably have to wait the same amount of time to see if it helps you, and I hope sincerely that it does.
