Lexapro to Paxil

After 7 years of Lexapro it appears to have stopped working. My Dr. is switching me to Paxil. HAs anyone had this happen before. Thanks

I have heard of these medications petering out and not working. That is a big bummer.  I assume they tried adjusting dosing? Have you taken any other SSRI's? Paxil is one that is a good med while it works but hard to come off of from what I've read.  We have a member that had a life changing issue with paxil.  Our doctor says that it is a viable medication to choose but it comes after others.  You've tried celexa, prozac, zoloft?
