Paxil CR Etc.
Oct 14, 2006
After being on Zoloft 200mg for 12 years (along with varying dosages of xanax with it), it apparently stopped working. My panic came back with a vengeance and I am depressed. The shrink says that my anxiety is causing the depression (don't too much doubt that). I was put on 12.5mg of Paxil CR and the zoloft was reduced to 100mg for one month. Now the doc has stopped all zoloft and has me on 25mg of paxil. As to the xanax, I take .5mg every 6-8 hours as needed. I've only taken the 25mg of paxil for 2 days now. I am feeling rough and was wondering how long it generally takes for the paxil to kick in, especially as I have been taken completely off the zoloft now??? Does anyone have a clue or any experience with this? I sure do need reassurance here. I'm very upset and feel hopeless. I know it won't happen overnight though and I need to be patient (hard to be, but what else to do?)
How long does a person give an anti-depressant to start working before wondering if it's gonna work at all?
Thanks for any help, advice, etc.!
