I don't think either one is known for being better than the other.

My experience was that both don't work. Paxil is an anti-orgasm pill to me, while Zoloft is the pill that kills sex drive, but still alows for orgasm (not that you have any desire for one).

Can't speak to Paxil, but Zoloft made only the tiniest dent in my SA, and made it almost impossible to have an orgasm.

I know different people respond differently to different medications and so I can't bash one just because it didn't work for me, but...I am sorry I ever wasted my time with Zoloft, for all the good it did.
