Question Paxil losing potency?

I started taking Paxil about 4 months ago for anxiety. At first it worked really well, but lately I have noticed that I am feeling more anxious than normal, as well as angry and clenching my jaw. I am on 25 MG and I am wondering if I should have my doctor up my dose. I really believe that Paxil has helped me, but I'm not usually an angry person, so this has kind of come out of no where. Any suggestions?

Re: Paxil losing potency?

talk it over with a pharmacist, there a re 2 versions of paxil and the dose ranges are different so make sure you know which version you have

the dose of these antidepressant meds sometimes does need upping after a while

I've given it some thought, and I think that I'm going to go off it, because the panic attacks are coming back somewhat and I have been clenching my jaw really bad lately and it's really bothersome.
