I was on paroxetine for 2 years it worked really good my anxiety was eliminated I felt like I was fixed already so I decided to cut the doses without letting my physician know about 2 months ago I ended up relapsing because I got my anxiety back. Right when I had my anxiety attack on jan 21 I knew automatically it was because I lowered my dose. Since that day I been taking 30mg just like before but this time I got all the side effects flu like symptoms and my anxiety ampd up. Probly because I jumped to 30mg right away again. Anyway I almost on 4 weeks on 30 mg but I'm still very anxious and my anxiety is still there. I'm afraid it won't work the same. Can I get some advise I know I have a chemical imbalance now and need the medication for my brain to function correctly. But will it work the same
