I'm usually on the panic board as I have GAD. But today, my depression was really bad! I was on zoloft for 12 years and it "pooped out". I was put on paxil cr. At first it was 25mg and now 50mg (the max. dose for GAD). I've been on the 50mg for about a month. I'm still having a lot of anxiety and of course, that makes me depressed, but today, the anxiety was less and the depression was big! How long should I give the paxil before I ask the doctor to try something else??? I went last Monday to see the pdoc and he wanted me to stay on the paxil for another month when I'll see him again, then decide whether to switch meds. I am soooooooo scared and upset. I don't know what to do or what's the best choice. Could smeone give me some guidance here or tell me their experiences. I have one friend on paxil and she said it took her 4 months to feel better!!!!!! I don't know if I can wait that long! Help please!
