Paxil CR and Insomnia: Summary

It is impossible for your healthcare provider to know whether or not you will develop insomnia while taking Paxil CR. Also, in some cases, if a person does develop insomnia, it is challenging to know whether it is because of the condition or Paxil CR itself. This is because insomnia is common with some of conditions that Paxil CR treats. For example, a number of people with depression report insomnia.
If you are taking Paxil CR and insomnia becomes a problem, make sure to talk with your healthcare provider. There are other treatments that he or she may be able to recommend, such as adjusting the Paxil CR dosage or trying another depression medicine.
