I am currently on 10mg of paxil, and I have been taking it for a week now. Sometimes during the day I feel more anxious than I did before and have more racing thoughts. Also I feel really tired and don't have much interest in doing anything but laying in bed. Has anyone had this during their first week on Paxil? Does it take a while to kick in fully?
Hello Goose84. Bit late in my answer, but yes, as Laurie said it takes awhile for the effects to diminish or lessen themselves. I started on Paxil this past May and fatique is still bothering me. Mind you, my anxiety levels are better. I started on 20mg and am now on 30mg. Another side effect that I still have is an increased appetite. Hungar pains. Anyhow, its been 4 days since you've asked this question, hopefully you're getting along a bit better. best wishes to you.pledgw
