Marion:
Thanks for the link. I brought it up to my one onc today. He said he's seen it, and he would be happy to prescribe it for me, if my main onc says it's okay.

BUT

I want to tell people it's very similar to Paxil so if you have adverse reactions to Paxil be prepared.

I want to talk to my other onc to see how similar they will be. I took 1 and only 1 Paxil. I had the strangest hallucination on 1 Paxil. Not going there again!! I'd rather be depressed.....
