Paxil and Calf Pain
I have been taking Paroxetine for a little over two years. Just recently, when I tried to take a walk the calves on both legs began hurting after just 5 minutes of walking. I used to be an avid walker and was really surprised. Could this be due to Paxil?
I am not familiar with this being a side effect of paxil. There could be many causes, however, and if it persists, I encourage you to see your family doctor.
