if it hasnt happened before then paxil isnt the med for you

since paxil is one of many prozac type meds, the others seem to be also ruled out, but there are several other types

ask the doc for some valium type meds to be taken  a s needed, and maybe try another type of antidepressant later

I do wish docs would prescribe some other antidepressant than paxil, I hnow its heavily promoted to them for anxiety, but it does have a problem sometimnes, called paxil discontinuation syndrome, when eventually quitting

it seems everyone except the docs who prescribe paxil know about it eyes

I am sure you could but better to ask your doc
