I was on HRT to control hot flashes but my doctor took me off the hormones and put me on Paxil. I have been on the drug for 6 weeks and have noticed that the frequency of hot flashes have increased. How long until it takes effect? I am 64 and still suffering from hot flashes!
What’s your dosage?
6 weeks on paroxetine is considered a “fair trial”. It roughly takes around 6-8 weeks for Paxil to fully kick in. It also depends on your dose, if you’re on a low dose, maybe it’s not therapeutic enough for you to be effective. But definitely reach out to your health care provider about how your feeling.
