kiki--it can take up to a month for the paxil to reach full effect, mine started to kick in around 7 days after starting it....and you didnt mention the exact dosage he is on but you may want to becareful as ssri's in some children (under the age 18) can sometimes cause suisidal thoughts (anyway not to scare you i just saw this on the 700 club the other night)..
and increasing the dosage sometimes can make the obsessions worse, i was on 25 mg and wwnt up to 50 and i got really obsessive again, my theripist said that sometimes when we take to high a dosage it can make it become sort of ineffective....if that makes any sence...
best to talk with the dr. about anything like this first.
JBoy---i think it does have alot to do with boredom...i was also on 25 mg. of paxil and on days i was busy i was fine then when i had to much time on my hands i started to obbsess...which led to compulsions....but anyway i am off paxil now and not doing to well .
but i really think it is probably NOT the meds causing relaps, it is probably just your mind messing with you.
