Hi Leftie - I'm so sorry to hear about the Lexopro, and the others. What type of benzo do you take. I take Klonopin, really helps. I also take Paxil, well a form of Paxil - Pexeva 60mgs. I didn't like PaxilCr; it made me groggy. Regular Paxil didn't but I couldn't get it cause of insurance. The Pexeva, for me, feels just like the regular paxil, thank god, cause I cannot be without it.

Were you taking a benzo while trying the Lexopro? Which Paxil did you try and for how long if I may ask?

Take it easy,
