Have you considered going on a lower dose of paxil. It seems to me if Paxil is working but you are sleeping all the time, then you should be on a lower dose.

I hope this redirect works and Piper gets some help. It's my first time redirecting.

It seemed to work, but it got to the point that all I wanted to do was sleep when I wasn't working and my productivity at work suffered as well. I decided to take myself off of it a short while ago. Of course, I started falling apart again. My doctor prescribed Lexapro 10mg. As I was reading the uses and side effects that are printed out by my pharmacy, I noticed that Lexapro is used to treat depression. I do not suffer from depression and the side effects sound just as bad, if not worse, as Paxil. I thought maybe I could start out with just a half a pill at a time on a trial basis. I'm very small, so it should probably still be effective. If anyone has any thoughts on my ramblings that are stemming from paranoia and fear, I would really like to hear them.
