I have been taking paxil for 7 weeks now and it has done pretty much nothing but made my anxiety worse and make me feel tired. I started off at 10mg for 2 weeks and then 2 weeks later I switched to 20mg and now I am up to 40mg. I don't have any horrible side effects but it really has not done a thing for me (I have been on 40mg for about 2 weeks now). Do you think I should switch to something else and from your experience, what do you recommend? I am diagnosed with GAD and Panic Disorder. I have a friend that takes Prozac and says it has done wonders for him. I have a "Medication check" appointment with my primary tomorrow morning.
