For people with GAD the effectiveness of PAXIL was demonstrated in patients dosed in a range of 20 to 50 mg/day. If you find that doubling the dose is a bit much do talk with you physician about cutting back a bit and working your way up to 50 mgs a little slower. Just FYI.
I hope your day went well and we are here to support you. Take care.
Good Morniing and join my club, mornings are my bad times. I wake up and try to stomp down the bad "stinkin thinkin" but it often overwhelms me as I wonder what I will do each day and with whom and why I am even here on some days........... I do much better when I am scheduled to work that day. I will usually get a grip after coming here and responding to others as helping others makes me feel better. :)
One of the best remedies for anxiety is to talk about it. Here's where good friends and family can come in. The old adage "A problem shared is a problem halved" comes into its own here, and that is most likely why you feel better after you have post to your HW family.
Remember, support groups are a place for people to give and receive both emotional and practical support as well as to exchange information. People with health conditions, as well as their friends and families find support groups to be a valuable resource and get confirmation that their feelings are "normal", educate others, or just let off steam. IMHO joining a support group is joining a family. You have not said to much.......we are here for you.
My first panic attack was standing in line at Walmart with a ton of groceries in my cart. Thought I was going to stop breathing before I got out of there! Whew..................
I have a sensitive stomach and with any med increase, we have to go very slow which means it takes even longer to feel better.
It is nice to have a place to vent and share experiences. I know what you mean about the working situation and you are doing the right thing. I do not mean it is right to always hide your feelings but the workplace has changed so much and you never know who you really can trust. Sometimes it is a downfall to confide in the wrong person. Like walking a tightrope......and I am not very coordinated....haha
Hope we both feel better soon.
