Re: Paxil, chest pain and irregular rythmns
So many antidepressants cause anxiety in the beginning of starting it. It is not surprising for people to get anxiety for the first three weeks or first month of taking it. At the same time, if this continues, then its probably wise to switch meds on docs advice. Sometimes some meds work better than others, each person is unique. Personally I suffer both from depression and anxiety, but have had some serious health problems in the past. I know how much anxiety sucks, but sometimes it does feel like a heart attack. My good friend takes Paxil and when he first started taking it, he said he had chest pain and more anxiety than usual. He is doing great now on Paxil. My advice is to keep in touch with your doc. If you dont feel comfortable with the one you have, consider a second oppinion. Hope that helps. Best wishes...and good luck. Let me know how it turns out for you with the Paxil. Ok?
