Hey All, I was prescribed "Paxil" yesterday by my neurologist. Before I start a long term drug with side effects I was wondering if anybody out there had any feedback on Paxil/treatment. I read at the Paxil website that Paxil stop serratonin from entering the platelets, which I assume must leave it in the system? Doc said to take this stuff for at least 6 months... maybe forever if it worked, but the side effects seem a bit steep (sexual disfunction!! as if the h/a's aren't enough??)Anybody got some input??
