    Paxil month and a half, weight gain, anorexia, calories, desire
    As with others on this site who had weight gain/loss on Paxil, during the first month and a half on Paxil I developed anorexia- I lost all desire to eat and had to force myself to eat more than 200 calories a day. I lost 15 pounds in 2 weeks.
