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............................

not everyone gets side effects. you might be lucky. also the benzo should help with any :)
if being in his company makes you anxious i'd say avoid him for the time being. if you can hang out with him and feel relaxed then go for it.
when i started zoloft, an ssri similar to paxil i felt the negative side effects within a few hours. if your only side effect is feeling a bit more spaced out i wuldnt worry. that will pass. the positive effects take a few weeks to start.

you dont need to make up your mind about your friend straight away. keep it cool and give yourself some time.
