Hi I suffer from OCD and aggressive obsessions, I started two months ago with Paxil 12.5 mg cr, at first I felt it was working then somethings happen in my life and I felt the medication lost effect, so my doctor told me to get it up to 25 mg CR.
Hi, jrobert! I would expect that you'll see some real benefits as 25mg is the standard initial dose. Your doctor may have started you on a very low dose to help you adjust to the medication with a minimum of potential side effects. It can take 6-8 weeks to feel the maximum effects and your dose could be raised as high as 62.5mg if needed.
So give it a little time and patience and I think you'll be feeling better very soon. Paxil is an excellent choice for OCD and anxiety disorders.
Best regards, Wildcat
