PAXIL - coping with side effects ?! please help !

Posted by ben on May 1, 2002, at 3:52:03

I took Paxil for a few months with good results except side effects. weight gain, awfull tiredness (30 mg/day), teeth grinding (bruxism) restless legs and elevation of liver enzymes. Strangely the liver enzymes were okay after two month (at 30 mg/d) but after 4 month they were too high ?! At 15 mg/d they were okay again ?! Could it been the (Levodpa) which my doc added against restless legs and tiredness ? Or the combo ? The Levodopa alone didnt affect the enzymes. The Paxil alone wasnt measured ! Ihad to got off it in last december and my depression is back ! Should I give Paxil a second try and combining it with something other do diminish the side effects ? Like Wellbutrin, Jumexal (against tiredness and weight gain) ? I tried several ADs and combos (Celexa, Efexor, Remeron, Aurorix, Surmontil, Deanxit, Zoloft, Elavil, Edronax) and had to get off because of side effects or lack of response. Other problems are: combing Paxil with other meds because of 2D6 inhibition and coming off it because the short half life (withdrawal).
What do you think ? Any ideas or inputs ?
