I remember taking Paxil about 12 years ago and it kicked in within 10-14 days? Is there a difference in the generic drug or does it just take longer?
I used paxil for depression an anxiety with no great sucess. However I also tried many more , all with some bad side effects and poor results. They were all generic brands. So now I take brand name effexor xr which has helped the best of all. Insurance wont pay and it is very expensive. I used brand name wellbutrin 13 years ago to quit smoking and I have been quit for 13years, it also helped my anxiety and depression. Last year I tried the generic for axenty and depression and it was terrible for side effects with little help. I freef genetric drugs for emotional problems are not close to brand names for lower side effects and better results. Good luck.
Paxil usually takes 3 weeks to start working if you notice that you are not seeing a difference ask you doctor to up your dosage I was on 20 mg myself and its for my anxiety depression and panic it didn't help with the panic at all so I got it increased to 40 I saw it helped a lot but I still had hard time.calming down so now I'm up to 60 well I'm going to start 60 in 2 weeks
hello breathe. Long tale short, I've been on it since this past spring. 30mg and will shortly being upping it. I take it for anxiety. and just like faith25, feel the need to increase it. It helps but its just not doing the job. Oh, and as Laurie said, there really isn't that major a difference between the two, generic/non-generic. Hope that by this time, you're doing well on it. I was a tad late in answering your question.best wishes to you.
