I'm sorry Leeza,
I couldn't take Paxil even in a small dose. But if your doctor has prescribed it and you are ok on the smaller dose, then go up in dose gradually. If you still have plenty of the 20 mg. tabs (and they aren't time released) then break some in half and take 1 and 1/2 one day and 1 the next and 1 and 1/2 the following day, etc. After you overcome any side affects (if any), then start taking 1 1/2 every day. Then go to 2 one day and 1 1/2 the next day and then go all the way to 2 a day and then you can go on to the 40 mg. pill.
Does that sound less frightening?
