... user of Paxil 12.5 CR. I was told to take it at bed time. I have never taken this drug before or anything like it (Far as I know of). This was given to help Anxiety. Thanks for your help please only post what you THINK or what you remember the experience was.

Let me just explain that you may have some mild side effects in the beginning such as headache, nausea, or diarrhea. This will subside. Some people experience heightened anxiety in the beginning, don't let this alarm you. It takes upwards of a month or so to reach max effectiveness so be patient. You are on a low dose so you should not experience much discomfort, the doc may increase to a more therapeutic level as you become use to this medication. All that being said, you'll notice a decrease in your anxiety symptoms. I'm a chronic worrier and it helps me deal with this.
