I've been on Paxil 10mg for almost a year and it helped my overall stress.. I'm 38 male and About a week ago I had my very first anxiety/panic attack., landed me in the ER.,thought I was having a stroke or heart attack. End result was a severe anxiety attack. Next day saw my PCP and he raised my Paxil to 20mg. I've had some type of small anxiety attack everyday because I'm obsessing about having another lol. Can't get it out of my mind! Saw a therapist and he says mine are stress induced anxiety. I'm now on klonopin .5 mg and supposed to take as needed. My question is how long will this raise in Paxil take to help? This sucks! I want my life back. I will be fine if I could just get my mind off of having another attack lol.
