I am not on Paxil now, but was a few years back. I know that when I started taking it, my anxiety actually got a bit worse before it got better. It does get better though, believe me! I was agoraphobic and terrified of everything!!!! Paxil gave me my life back - I also had to find the dose that was right for me - which ended up being 60 mg a day because my anxiety was so bad. But let me tell you, once it did take its full effect, I was able to do EVERYTHING I wanted to again, no worries! I hope this helps you a bit!!! Just give it a bit more time - also, maybe talk to your Dr. and see if he thinks you should increase a little bit. Hope you are feeling better!!
I am on 25mg now and compared to how I was feeling a few weeks ago, I do feel better! I go to my new pdoc on Monday and hope that goes well! Are you on any benzos?
