I suggest you get a full list of them online, but primarily the side effects are related to weight gain, short term intestinal symptoms, an unusual mental feeling for a few days, and not much else...although, infrequently, many more.
My experience is, the more a medication works, the more side effects you get. Paxil is loaded with them, but then so are all of these crazy pharmaceuticals. Since everyone is different, though, no one can predict which side effects you'll get, and you might not even notice some of them until much later, such as changes in personality. And they change over time. And they're not side effects, that's psych speak, they're just effects.
Wow, that's interesting. Paxil made me much more aggressive and angry, but I didn't know it was the Paxil until I had to research it when I went through withdrawal. I was even trying to provoke fights, which is so unlike how I used to be.
