I know theres a difference, but has anyone tried both? And has found 1 more helpful than the other? My doc put me on paxil CR I took 1 the next day the room was spinning so I havent took any more I go see him again on the 12th so I figured I would just wait. I think I have been suffering from depression or something for over a year now. I thought it was my IBS-d but I cant seem to get better so I guess its something else I even had a colonscopy done and it was normal. I just cant seem to understand how this can happen to a person. Good Luck!!
