I have taken Paxil for 7 years...it took me 6 months to wean myself off of Paxil and 1 month to get back on Paxil...I am wanting switch to Zoloft because I could sleep my life away and have gained 40lbs on Paxil. Went to the Doctor and she prescibed me to take 50 mg of Zoloft and to continue taking Paxil and cutting it into 10mg. I have had much more energy since starting the zoloft, however I am dizzy and feel like I am having brain ZAPS...I just feel really weird. I am suppose to stop my paxil on Tuesday and I am scared...wondering if I should take 100mg of Zoloft and than take 5mg of Paxil? These brain ZAPS are driving me crazy :(...any advice would be much appreciated. Thank You
