Welcome to HealingWell and the A & P Forum. I am Kitt and I love your name, I had to laugh when I read it, and I won't be forgetting it.
Great advice and thank you for sharing your first hand knowlege of Paxil.
I am going to bump a topic to the top for newbies to introduce themselves as we all want to meet you.
Again a warm welcome.

I wonder sometimes if since I've been on the Paxil for 8 years, if it's losing its effectiveness. I'm on a higher dose than I ever have been but at what point do you realize it's not working and you move on to something else. I very well may not have given it enough time.
I would suggest giving it a bit more time and then if it is not working talk with your pdoc about looking at a different med as you can wear out on one AD and a new one will work better.
It took about three weeks for Paxil to kick in for me. I only stayed on it for three months, but I remember I was a little unsteady on my pins for those first few weeks, so no running a marathon ya hear?!
