the Paxil 10mg was one of the better medications out of the 30+ I have tried.

It was the proper balance for the particular med for me personally. even 12.5mg would leave me persistently sedated through the whole day and as I mentioned the 20mg would make me feel like a sleepy zombie. 10mg was enough to help me to an acceptable degree but my life would remain very stagnant and therefor even after trying other doses such as 7.5 etc I felt after the 3 years on it I really needed a change. I didn't want to settle for a life of solitude where I only want to stay at home and have difficulty relating to other people. Paxil helped my pain a lot but depression not enough.

Also another thing I remember. 10mg paxil would be consistent a lot of the time in terms of mood. some mild uplifting action. but... over time i felt as if it was losing it's effect. the 10mg no longer was helping the way it was. Which was the final factor to make my choice clear in terms of trying new medications.
