Hi, Theresa! Has it had any effect, yet?

It can take about 4 to 6 weeks for a medication like Paxil to reach its full level of effectiveness in your body. Generally, that's about the same time when you'll notice any side effects reaching their peak in intensity, then starting to taper off.

If it's had no effect by then, that means it most likely isn't the right medication for you.

I've never tried it, but it worked very well for my ex-husband, he was on it for years.

What others have you tried?

No I have felt no improvement at all. I just was raised from 20 to 30 Mgs a few days ago but I have been on it almost 4 weeks now. Do you remember how long it took him to notice any change and what was he taking it for?

My husband's been on 30 mg of Paxil for 4 weeks and 5 days. He says he's not tired, eats well, has good hygiene, but says he has no interest in doing anything. Everything I've read says to give this med 6 to 8 weeks to get its full therapeutic results. Does his dosage need to be raised or could it be that it needs to be lowered?
