Hi Theresa,

Based on my research, it can take 4-6 weeks for Paxil to take effect.

Keep in mind that medication effects everyone differently, so no matter what kind of experience someone else has (positive or negative) that cannot determine what effect it will have on you.

If you don't notice a change after a couple weeks, you may need to consider trying a different medication or other methods of treatment.

I actually took Paxil when I was younger, I believe it helped some with my anxiety but I do remember getting sick to my stomach a lot and I just didn't feel good with it in my system. When I stopped taking the medication it's like all of the issues that I dealt with previously came rushing back. I almost felt worse after taking Paxil than before because while I was taking it, it was only covering up deep painful issues I didn't understand and didn't want to address- therefore I didn't have to deal with them. I've realized it's much more important to face my fears and get to the root of the problems so that I don't have to rely on medication. I still deal with anxiety at times but since I have turned to meditation, deep breathing exercises, and supplements like holy basil, my anxiety (and even the occasional bouts of depression I experienced) have really subsided.

I really hope that you will be able to find the method of treatment that works for you! Please post back if you have any questions.
