Working / Worked
I have been on Paxil for about 10 years, playing around with the different dosages with a Dr's approval. It seems to be the only medicine that I respond to for Panic Disorder.
Working / Worked
Not enough
Working / Worked
It worked for the period of time I needed it, but i eventually weened. It is sometime I have considered taking again when the panic becomes too much, but I try to manage through it without meds.
Working / Worked
Worked temporarily, minimal side effects
Working / Worked
I tried three other medications that didnt work. I finaly tried this one and it was wonderful except for some side effects. After every six months of using this it feels like its not working anymore almost like ive become ammune to it. Because of this i have to keep increasing my dosage. Once i increase it it works again. This medication has also made me gain weight very quickly. I used to have six pack abs and now i cant weat most of my clothes because they show how fat i am.
Working / Worked
It didn't help me, though I know many it did help. I was on it for about 6 months then we re-looked the underlying reasons and switched to Ativan, which worked better for me.
