: I started 10 mg of Paxil six days ago because of panic disorder. I am very, very nervous. I have really had no side effects to report of, a little bit of spaciness, but it seems my anxiety level has increased. I had a full-blown panic attack today, and I haven't had one in about four years. I am wondering if the drug is to blame, or if my anxiety level is just higher. Also, in two days I will increase my dose to 20 mg, will I then experience side effects. I am pretty scared, I live alone and I don't know what to expect. Please help.
: Thanks, Emma
Emma- i had the same experience with paxil, what i did was discontinue the paxil and I started on buspar. buspar worked wonders for me and i felt no side affects like i had experienced with the paxil. my side affects with the paxil also occured very early in my treatment, if i were you, i would switch meds before increasng your dosage of paxil and your side affects.
