According to my Pdoc, if you think an AD worked in 6 days that is good but it is in your mind as the meds will kick in sooner in some people but most people it does take 4-6 weeks and you should not just all of a sudden feel great. You just realize you are starting to feel more normal and decrease in your symptoms.
I am sure some Paxil users will be along.

Hi. I am on 40mg of Paxil which I take each morning. I find that it helps a great deal from panic attacks along with my other meds. Yes, it can make some people drowsy at first. It does take some time to really feel it "kick" when you take it. The only side effect I find is that my dreams at night are "wild".
I hope this helps a bit.
I haven't been on paxil for quite a year yet, but it has helped me a lot! I am on 75mg (I always seem to have to take the max dose of ADs for effect!). When I was first starting it, I felt really tired and sleepy. My pdoc siad to take it at night rather than in the morning and that helped a lot. The side effects should settle down before too long. If the paxil seems to help, try to be patient and stick with it until the side effects ebb away!
