[QUOTE]I visited my doc yesterday and they are switching me from Paxil CR to Lexapro due to the unavailability of Paxil CR. They have me on a schedule that will take about 2 months.

The schedule has me taking 5 mg of Lexapro for 3 days, then 10 mg for a week, then 15 for a week and finally 20. Then I go off the Paxil very gradually. I don't remember the increments but it will be adjusted based on on comfort. I was told under no circumstances to just switch and quit the Paxil cold turkey due to serious side affects.

Now, the thing is that I am on much higher dosages of Paxil CR (37.5) than you so that may reduce your issues, but I am concerned that you noticed a big difference when just switching from 12.5 CR to 10 regular. These are essentially the same, just the CR contains a hair more. So I would recommend discussing a schedule with your doc.[/QUOTE]


Taking 2 SSRI's at the same time doesn't make alot of sense :eek: However just because the CR version has been halted for the time being, the regular Paxil is still available. 37.5 of CR = 40 of the regular........
