I am also studying in uni and I need my brain for an exam next week and project proposal and a written work. I've just started with the Paxil 2 days ago. I'm very anxious but I think I can manage. It would be nice to take a med to help. I have had much success with Paxil. Was on it for close to 12 years.
Yes, I did gain weight from it, but I was also on a very high dose at the time. I weaned off of it, and now I went back on it. I haven't had any memory loss. The only side effects long term that I could tell were some weight gain and sexual side effects.
In the beginning while your body adjusts to it, you might have some nausea. Paxil can be hard to come off of, so wean slowly when the time comes. Paxil was the first of many drugs I have tried over the years. For me, one of the biggest and most annoying side effect was yawning.
I started out on 10mg, and worked my way up to 40 mg. I yawned all of the time. I could not consume enough carbs. I craved all of the bad stuff such as donuts, cake, cookies, candy.
