I have been taking Paxil for about 3 years. I take 70mg per day.
I still couldn't sleep so the Doc put me on Serzone, now 200mg at night.
I am now sleeping. But DON"T try to get off Paxil by using Serzone--
I tried with disasterous results. I also got
an "I am sorry!" from the doctor whose care I am under!
