I have a problem with excess worry too but I did not know it can be controlled with medication. As Pledge just said about Welbutrim and Zolif- I take 300 mg of W and 150 of Z. I am still worrying amongst other things and working on letting go of things I have no control over.

june baby pledge gives excellent advise what meds work for one person may not work for another like i read in the other post so talk with your psych im guessing you have one for the paxil they can give advise on some technics on how to help control it slowly and also if you need to change or up your paxil.
i generally try to control my worrying in 2 ways (never been diagnosed with it on paper but people have told me to talk to a dr about it) the one psych ive seen said i am ocd and do have an obsession with controling my surroundings so may be the same not sure but anyway how i try to keep it under control is 1 talk to friends when anxiety and stress goes up 2 write down on paper what if"s what if this happens and worry about it what is the good in worrying this will happen? what if i relax and dont worry what is the worse that can happen? if this would make u panic dont do it but basically it tells my mind the world will not end if it doesnt run through my mind driving me crazy with worry. i also do a meditation breathing tech i learned along time ago breath in slowly for a count of 8 then breath out slowly for a count of 8 i do that till the racing of my heart slows down so i can think clearly and tell myself the world didnt end its gonna be ok i cant explain in the best way but it helps me. i hope you find some relief, keep in touch hope you have a healthy and happy day please take care and remember you are not alone others feel this way too y/f

Hello 1964junebaby. There's a large variety of drugs to help ocd, as well as anxiety, depression. Well, if you're not happy with the results of paxil, I'd suggest either a combination of zoloft and wellbutrin or prozac and wellbutrin. Hope this helps, and talk to your doctor, your paxilo might need to be adjusted.best to you.
