I tried Paxil in August 2008 and my friends and family noticed a definite difference in me and how I was much calmer and not so nervous. I stopped it because of a minor eye brow muscle twitch, but if that went away then I would have stayed on it. No other SSRI I tried helped me because the side effects were so bad. I'm gonna see if I can handle the non-sex life, although I know it will be difficult. IM not nuts about gaining weight either. Anyone ever try Effexor? Any good?
