I was taking PaxilCR 37.5 for 14 months. I had the same type is side effects that you've described plus some! I was extremely tired all day, had difficulty sleeping or difficulty waking up, excessive sweating (eeewwww), absolutely no sex drive. . .I was a walking side effect list! About a month ago I just swapped out my Paxil for 10mg of Lex. LOVE IT!!! I don't know if it is from withdrawing from Pax or adding Lex but the libido hasn't been better! Less sweating (thank heavens), normal sleepiness. I did experience a foggy feeling on Paxil and didn't really care about things that I should have cared about. With Lex I care about missing appointments. . .it's a good thing. I just jumped over and I did experience some "brain shocks" but no more than when I was on Paxil and missed a day or took my dose late. Hope that all goes well!!!
