My Dr is having me go off Venlafaxine and putting me Paxil (paroxetine) have any of you had bad side effects? or if you're on it, how do you feel. I told my Dr I needed to change my medicine because Venlafaxine was making my anxiety/panic attacks worse and the insomnia is horrible!

      20 years? Wow, that's great that you were able to find something that worked well for you❤️ did you have any side effects in the beginning? I'm really hoping Paxil helps, Venlafaxine has been giving me horrible insomnia and shortness of breath

      I personally don't like Paxil, I made me really sleepy during the day and I was always yawning, but now I'm on Zoloft
