I have started using paxil for about 3 weeks now. It seems to be working for me. I hear so many people complaing about weight gain and I was afraid this was going to happen to me. I just lost 51 lbs on weight watchers and didn't want to gain any weight back.
I watch my calorie intake every day and keep a journal. But I find I am taking in less calories lately because since taking paxil I do not feel hungry like I used to.. I have lost 3 lbs in the past 3 weeks.

Excessive eating and hunger can be caused by mental health disorders and depression.

And not everyone experiences such side effects from this class of medications.

Very glad to hear that it is working well for you.

Paxil contains the active ingredient Paroxetine, it is an SSRI antidepressant.
