How Does Paxil Make You Feel?
Posted 17 December 2009 - 11:50 AM
My psychiatrist prescribed me paxil, and i've been taking it for about 3 weeks now for social anxiety, but I don't feel any different. When you take paxil, do you physically feel anything?
For me I get a slight perspective shift. I also have an uptick in energy levels, which usually comes with some SE's (initial anxiety, but restless sleep mainly). In your case, taking it for SA, I'm not surprised you don't feel different, presuming you do not have any accompanying depression.
What is your currant dose? Paxil dosage for effective treatment of SA can go as high as 60 mg.

There are a few good effects. My nervous stomach seems calmed down. I'm sleeping better than normal. Even though mentally I still feel nervous, there are less physical symptoms of being nervous (except for the rapid heart beat around social situations).
I'm going to keep on trucking for a few more weeks.
