The xanax is probably for the adjustment to paxil, and current panic. Thats what i would be guessing. He probably said to use the xanax if you have a full blown attack. I'm just assuming that. My doc has done similar things, it doesnt seem unusual to me.
side effects, some do go away or lessen over time. Actually a lot do. Most complaints are sexual side effects, and weight gain. But at first you might feel a lot of side effects. Give it some time for you body to adjust.
