    Hi Kara, yes I feel terrible after increasing from 10 to 20mg paroxetine. Shakey, very anxious, weepy, nauseous, drowsy, palpitations. Got to stick with it though because it worked for me before.

      Hi Rob,

      ​I took 10 mg for two weeks, still felt terrible so increased to 20mg. After a week I felt better and after two weeks I felt fine, although my hands were shakey first thing in the morning, this has now stopped.
