Hello, and welcome!
I've had the same experience as Kitt: Paxil didn't really make a noticeable change until 4 weeks, and the full effects were later. It has been a very good med for me.
Do try to forgive yourself for what happened at work. You've apologized, and now you can try to move forward again, learning from the situation, but not beating yourself up about
it. If they other person is still hurt, it may be hard for you to deal with that, but you cannot heal their pain, only apologize (as you have) for having begun it. Leave the rest to them to heal in their own time, and try to allow the same for yourself.
Good luck, and let us know how you're doing.
