How long does it take for Paxil to trigger Bipolar if it is undiagnosed. Husband started Paxil and I think he is undiagnosed. He was prescribed it for anxiety.

About the time you would expect the Paxil to start working for depression is when the Bipolar would become quite noticable.
All SSRI drugs like Paxil can cause Mixed Episodes and if you think that is happening you need to contact the doctor as soon as possible. If he has been on them for long then maybe even stop or reduce the dose.
I had undiagnosed Bipolar and was put on an antidepressant for pain and it hasn't been pretty. I didn't know what was happening and was on them too long and so am still struggling to get the Bipolar under control.
