Paxil is an ssri anti depressant that is used for depression and sometimes anxiety, I don't understand why they told you to take Paxil if you are having severe panic attacks, you need something that works quickly. Paxil can take weeks sometimes up to 6 to 8 weeks to feel it's effects or to see any improvement. The xanax they gave you is in a class of drugs callled benzodiazepines which act almost immediately for anxiety and panic attacks, but maybe the xanax didn't work for you, not every medicine works for everyone. Thankfully you have options there are other quick acting benzodiazepines like Valium, klonopin,Librium,lorazepam, and many more. I would suggest talking to a doctor about a benzodiazepine/sedative. Best of luck to you and I hope this helped. Good luck.
