Hey guys, I have been on Paxil for 11 months now. 20 mg for 9 months then upped to 30 mg for the last 2 months, this is the beginning of 3rd month of being on 30 mg & I’m still having these damn blips! I actually have been having blips up and down my whole entire time of being on these meds. How do I know when enough is enough, or if I should up my dose to 40mg. My anxiety isn’t as bad as it use to but I still get bad bouts of anxiety. The other day on my  way to school, I was feeling unusual anxiety and as soon as I got to class I had a severe panic attack and had to catch an Uber back home. 😰😰 When is this med going to start working?! I know it’s a process but damn. This process is annoying!

    I have had some good days, pretty good days. But lately I’ve been having more negative days than positive.

    That doesn’t sound good. It started working pretty quick for me. How old are you? Only ask as you mentioned school. My advice would be to see your Dr, and maybe try a different drug? There are so many available now. Different drugs effect people in different ways. Don’t give up hope. You will find something that works for you.
