    Question PAXIL , anxiety/agoraphobia

    Was just prescribed Paxil ( generic) in 10 mg ... i have such severe anxiety that I am scared to death to take the paxil at all. I'm 22 and weigh around 140-150 pounds. The doctor suggested I take 5mg for a week then bump up to the 10. along with that take .5mg of klonopin for the anxiety. i know the paxil takes a few weeks to kick in I'm just nervous about the side effects if it will make my anxiety worse or not. I can't handle worse anxiety , I sit in my house all day have a panic attack symptom for up to 10 hrs. i really need to take this medicine but was looking for some advice if any one thinks that it won't work because it is so low or not. i realize it sounds stupid to be afraid of taking a medicine just mentally when i have the pill in my hand my anxiety gets to the point where i think it'll make it worse when i take it , and i can't handle that right now in my life.

    I have been on Paxil for about 8 months. It was given to me for depression. I am still having panic attacks on it tho. I am here to see if anyone has found anything that works for panic attacks.
