I took 25 mgs PaxilCR for 4 months--I was not even able to get aroused, and I was a bit of a zombie--forgetful about big things AND not terribly concerned about the times I dropped the ball like I should have been. I felt like I got my brain back on lexapro at 15 mgs. I have just upped to 20 because I have felt stressed and have been having problems concentrating again (one of my most problematic depression symptoms).
I think you may find that 10mgs is not enough--you will probably need 20-30mgs lex. I just started taking 10mgs lex on a friday--after my last dose of paxil on a thurs. with no break. At about two weeks I went up to 15--where I stayed for about three months. During my switch I had about four weeks of increased depression and irritability, no real increase in anxiety, and a clearer head. I have found it much better overall and would like to wish you good luck.
