i switched from paxil to lex after 8 years. i was on 20mg paxil with no problems. i weaned off it like your doc suggested and gradually added lex. ive been on lex alone now for 3 months. i was at 10mg and found it wasnt enough. it seems to be the consensus on this board and other places that lower doses of lex (5 or 10 mg) are effective for depression and higher doses (15 or 20) for anxiety. i was on 20 but was feeling foggy, so i'm now on 17.5. hope it helps!
