Please post an example query and the EXPLAIN ANALYZE output.  The

Do you have indexes where you need them?  Do you cluster on any of
the indexes?  Do you VACUUM and ANALYZE the database regularly?
Have you investigated whether you need to increase the statistics
on any columns?  Have you tuned postgresql.conf?  What version of
PostgreSQL are you using?
