Anxiety board


I've been taking Paxil CR 25 mg for about 2 weeks now and i'm doin alrite on it. I havent had any panic attacks but my anxiety symptoms seem to be getting worse. Is that normal? Should i be takin different meds for the panic attacks and anxiety? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

much thanks,
Philip
Hey Philp, I have been taking Paxil for about 10 yrs. Not the one you take just regular paxil. I take 40mg a day. My son who is 15 takes the paxil you take at 25mg a day. I haven`t had any anxiety attacks either but I do get anxiety, its not as bad as it used to be. Paxil is very addicting. i have tried to get off it and I can`t. I know that Paxil has helped me a lot. I used to be a very high strung person. I couldn`t handle life itself. It overwelmed me really bad. Just everday things would send me into a panic. I have an axiety medication I take but only when I need it, like during PMS. (yes PMS is real) I also never drink anything with caffene EVER EVER. Thats a big no no for people like us. If I feel like I am getting to worked up I go to another room and breathe deep and try to calm down. Thats akll I have found that works..........good luck
same with me. i take paxil and my attacks are controlled. but lately with all this stuff that is happening in my life and around me i feel like i may have to be bumped up because i'm getting "that" way again. but yeah don't dare try to get off without consulting yer doc. its not fun believe you me!! cya
