Hi there ~
Having panic attacks can be stressful. I understand that you have been started on paxil
. However you do not give me more details regarding dosage and how long you have been on it. You need to be on an adequate trial of paxil for it to be efficacious. In other words you may have to wait (or let your doctor know during your next appointment). However, there are other strategies that may help with panic attacks. Psychotherapy
or counseling sessions and short term trial of benzodiazepines that are quick and efficacious may be helpful. You need to consult a qualified psychiatrist
Take care and I hope this was helpful.
