Dear Justin, Welcome to Healthcaremagic!
Anxiety is a very common problem. Paxil (paroxetine
) is an SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor), used to treat anxiety, as well as many other psychiatric conditions like endogenous depression
, panic attacks etc. These medications take time for effects & meanwhile you may require other agents & psychotherapy
to keep up your morale. One week is little time to say if drug was ineffective. Discuss it with your psychiatrist
& continue with medicines. Good luck.
