Switched from Paxil to Lexapro

I was on 25 mg of Paxil CR for 5 months, and it worked very well to alleviate panic attacks and generalized anxiety. However, one side effect was delayed orgasm during sex. My doctor recently recommended that I swtich to Lexapro. He said that it would treat panic attacks and generalized anxiety as well as Paxil but with less sexual side effects. I am currently weaning off of Paxil and starting to take 10 mg of Lexapro.

For those who have swtiched from Paxil to Lexapro: 1.) What have the results been on treating anxiety or panic attacks? 2.) Were sexual side effects improved?
