I started out on a VERY low dose of Paxil 1.5mg for 7 days and today is day 9 and have been on 2.25mg for 2 days. I am finding I could sleep all day and can't function- anyone else experience this and will it slowly taper off????

Hello, MK! How are you feeling?

Yes, that is listed by the FDA as a possible side effect of SSRI antidepressants. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight changes.

It should taper off, but not until you are on one steady dose for awhile, so your body can get used to it. As long as you are gradually titrating up, you'll likely continue to experience this.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Unfortunately when I gradually got up to 10 mg I had bad side effects of a burning sensation through my whole body, sweats etc and doc took me off. Now my anxiety is through the roof.

Did you doctor suggest an alternative medication for you to try?

You might do well with something such as BuSpar, which is used to treat anxiety and in a different medication class.

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth.
