I was just recently started on Paxil and have been experiencing extreme fatigue. I feel like I could sleep all day long and get drowsy while driving. Does anyone have any experience with this-- is it just specific to Paxil or to all SSRIs? I'm wondering if I would have more luck with a different SSRI but I've only been on the Paxil for 2 weeks so I feel like I should tough it out a little longer. Any info. would be greatly appreciated.
My mom started taking Prozac about 8 months ago and was having terrible sleep problems and fatigue. I recommended that she ask her doctor if she could take it at night and poof! the sleep problems disappeared.
I'm not sure if this will work though for you because isn't Paxil dosed twice/day?
Anyway, there are lots of good SSRI's out there. Maybe you just need a different drug.
