Need help fast ! Emergency!

I have been on paxil for one week on a low dose..and I had a very big anxiety attack today. I don't feel at al better yet, I have actually been feeling worse on these pills. I also have been drinking coffee though (I know I am bad) which could be causing these problems. I am not sure what to do. I am afraid to think that these pills are making me worse, but I am also afraid to go off of them and not realize the coffee did this to me. I have heard on AD's you feel worse before you feel that true? I don't know if after just one week I should already give up on them? I need advice!

Re: Need help fast ! Emergency!


Paxil is one of the stronger antidepressants out there and it tends to hit the body rather hard. Your brain is not use to the new chemicals being introduced or manipulated. The anxiety attack could be the drug or the coffee or it just happened. Paxil takes between four to six weeks before it shows how much it is going to help or its not going to work at all. If I were you I would keep track of any odd feelings that you are experiencing and if you see a trend call your doctor up

take care

You ought to drop the caffeine right away. Too much is going on with paxil...a stimulant on top of that is going to exacerbate anxiety....Hard to make any predictions with ad's.

Good luck.
