My anxiety has greatly improved but I still have days that it creeps back in with racing thoughts or small feelings of panic. Doctor also gave me xanax .25 two times a day. I was thinking of increasing the Paxil to 30 mg, which he gave me as an option. Any ideas or thoughts?
I'm no expert at all but I think if he gave u the option give it a try see if it helps if not lower it again thars what id do
You may get better answers though
Yes, increasing the Paxil to 30mgs is definitely the better option than getting use to taking the xanax. I would try the Paxil increase and only use the xanax as a last resort.
I had to get to 30mg paxil before it was helping me with some anxiety, until then I was on klonopin twice a day, but like others said, definitely raise the paxil up to 30 and use the xanax ONLY when necessary.
