I recently started back on paxil after a month without it.  I just had panic attacks again and now I'm experinencing panic attacks generally in social situations.  I'm getting cognitive therapy also.  This social phobia is keeping me from working.  Any suggestions would be appreciated and I hope the paxil helps.

If the paxil is interfearing with your general daily function in a way that wasnt already impaired I would call and talk to the prescribing doc. Perhapse you woud need a new med or something.

the obvious answer is benzos which your doc should have prescribed, if he wont, I would fire him and get a new doc
you need to learn the CBT BEFORE quitting the antidepressant
sometimes paxil needs a higher dose the second time and occasionally wont worka t all, no one knows why

Harry I really dont think all peeps need to be on bensos
Just my 2 cents ' Call your doc if this is still an issue
Take care
agree this may not be the med for you
