It's a good idea to ask your doctor all of your questions about medications before deciding to start treatment with them. Your doctor can tell you why Paxil might work whereas Lexapro wasn't working.

Paxil: www.webmd.com/drugs/drug-32900-Paxil+CR+Oral.aspx?drugid=32900&drugname=Paxil+CR+Oral

Lexapro: www.webmd.com/drugs/drug-63990-Lexapro+Oral.aspx?drugid=63990&drugname=Lexapro+Oral

These 2 links are to the "Find a Drug" in the Drugs & Supplements drop-down box in the bluel bar at the top of the page. It's a nice resource

I hope you feel better.
