I am a 41 year old female and I have been on both Paxil & Remeron for 9 months. After 1 month of taking these I started having severe muscle pain and weakness in my hips and legs. I also started swelling in my legs, feet and hands along with a dry mouth every morning. I also suffered from terrible stomach issues.
