This is what I came up with:
Paxil or paroxetine 20mg is basically equivalent to Paxil CR 25mg,
Therefore 75mg of Paxil CR would equal 60mg of Paxil.
I would suggest you call your physician to clarify why he order 80 mg, perhaps he did not know the dosing equivalents.
The maximum dosage for Paxil even according to GSK literature is 60mg per day.
Hope this helps you some
