I was prescribed Paxil CR while in the Psych Ward 4 weeks ago. It has yet to help my anxiety and OCD. I know that regular Paxil is FDA approved for the treatment of OCD, however I noticed that Paxil CR isn't approved for OCD by the FDA. Is there a big difference between Paxil and Paxil CR for OCD treatment effectiveness? I am legally disabled from my OCD and I am on the 16th medication now because none have worked so far over the past 6-7 years. I am getting frustrated. I am also in therapy, but my main question lies as to the effectiveness of Paxil CR in the treatment of OCD. I have been bumped up from 12.5 mg Paxil CR to 25 mg Paxil CR. Am I better off on regular Paxil or does it really matter? Just curious. Thanks! :)
