xanax will help you out in the short, acting much faster. paxil is an antidepressant and takes up to 2 weeks to get totoally into your system

The Xanax would be the one to help you relax and rest. The Paxil should be taken in the morning it is an antidepressant and after awhile may perk you up a little because you won't be so depressed. If anxiety and sleep are the issues than the Xanax is the one to go with. Paxil is a dual action drug also it does help with both depression and anxiety attacks during the day though. Hope this info helps you.
