:dizzy: Hi All,

I've suffered from anxiety attacks my entire life. The first that I remember was when I was in kindergarten, I'm 45 yrs old now. They are completely debilitating for me, and once they flare up they last for months.

Any way, I take Paxil, and have for about 15+ years. During that time I've gained over 50 pounds and a few years ago I started sweating profusely. When we have beautiful 70 degree Spring days, I'm miserable. The sweating starts on my scalp, completly drenches my face neck and upper body. Needless to say it is very uncomfortable and embarassing. I bring sweat bands and hand towels to work and I'm an administrator. People often ask if I'm alright because just talking with someone makes me sweat--oh and my face and neck get extremly red.

Anyway, its time for me to switch meds. I have a very sweet doctor, but she isn't great when it comes to anxiety issues. So, I'm looking for information about how to switch without having anxiety attacks. Which meds produce the least side effects. What have your experiences been with changing meds.

Any and all of your replies will be greatly appreciated.
