Paxil vs Effexor

I have been on Paxil for several years. I'm told that most are using Effexor because it is newer.  As far as the two, What are the pros and cons of each one so I can make an educated decison.

It really depends on the person.  Most people are not using Effexor...more actually use an SSRI like Paxil.  Included in that family are Prozac, Zoloft, Lexapro, etc... I have known some that did not like Paxil, while others loved it and I have known some that have like Effexor and some that have not.  It really depends on the individual in my opinion.  Why are you coming off of Paxil?
