well i just took 12.5 mg of Paxil for the first time about 10 minutes ago. The doctor actually gave me two versions of Paxil, one the commercial version and the other the generic version. He said to try the commercial version first to see if it helps, if it does he told me to wein off of Klonopin. Ive heard some negative things about Paxil, just like Klonopin. I hope it helps.........

awaiting side effects............................

I almost quit paxil due to side-effects, thank god I didn't quit cause it's doing wonders right now. hang in there
seriously man, i't impossible for paxil to work in 2 days! you must stay on it for a few weeks and you will see that these feelings you are talking about will eventually go away. My DP was also increased in the first 2 weeks but after 4 weeks it started to get better. I don't know if it will work for you but if it works the same for you as it did for me, you won't regret staying on it!
if you worry to much about what the paxil will do to you in the first 2/3 weeks, you will build up a lot of stress wich probably makes you more depressed.
I had almost exact the same side effects as you have, but after 3/4 weeks they where all gone, and the weeks after that it just got better till it stabalized after a week or 8.
So give it some time
