Hello Riveralisa. I also as you take paxil. Did you notify your doctor that you went to the hospital? By sick, were you vomiting? headaches? stomach aches/cramps? Dizzy? Paxil, its side effects will as a norm, leave you, the common ones within a week or so of beginning the drug. Sometimes a bit longer. For the drug to begin its theraputic effect(s) can take anywhere from four to five weeks. Call your doctor and explain that you were so ill/sick you had to go to a hospital, because of the paxil and becarefull, and once again contact your doctor.
