    Question Question about Paxil vs Zoloft...

    Hey there, I suffer from general anxiety disorder triggered really bad by social anxiety. I started paxil this week... i'm easing on it starting on a quarter pill of 20mg tablets, and in a couple days boosting it up to a half a pill. My question is, is 20 mg a low dose, especially a half a tablet of it? I have a couple friends with less anxiety than me who are taking 50 mg tablets of zoloft... and so i was just wondering if paxil was a more powerful drug, or if they're pretty much the same, and 20 mg of paxil is 20 mg of zoloft, and vise versa? The reason I ask is because if they are pretty much the same, a quarter of a pill of paxil seems it wouldn't really do much to help the problem... sorry if this was confusing, but thanks in advance for any response!

    Zoloft doses are much different than Paxil, some people take 100 mg of Zoloft daily. Paxil at 20 mg is the therapeutic dose for treatment..
