Is there any difference in effect or tolerability of Paxil and Paxil CR?

I am wondering if Paxil CR is easier to tolerate in terms of side effects since it's a slower release version of the medication? 

Is one more effective than the other?

I have read that Effexor XR is much better than Effexor, I wonder if it's the same case with Paxil.
