Can Paxil Cause Anxiety Attacks ????

I used paxil 10 mg for about 7 days, and was fine. But I tweaked it a couple of times, took 1 1/2 tablets one day, then a couple of days later took 2, then bk to just one. Had a horrible anxiety attack in the middle of the night, thought I was going to die, worst in my life. Could the tweaking the dosages have caused this ???????

I would think it was caused by the change in doses. You should only take what was perscribed by the dr. Have you had any problems since

NO, I got so scared I quit taking it. But maybe you are right, changing the doses every couple of days, probably caused the anxiety attack at night.

I was on Paxil 20 mg for 2 days and it caused a horrible panic attack. I immediately stopped taking it. My psychiatrist said I was started on a dose that was too high for me.

I started back on Paxil 10 mg
After 3 days, I already notice a difference.

Re: Can Paxil Cause Anxiety Attacks ????

so at 10 mg i should be fine since it's such a small dose. Changing the doses bk and forth wasn't a good thing. Are you doing good on the 10 mg dose. Also, I'm taking a mild benzo once a day with it.
