Medication Question
« on: February 03, 2014, 01:57:48 PM »
Question for anybody: I have been taking Paxil CR 12.5 mg tablets for a little over 2 weeks and Ativan for about a month. I still am struggling w/daily anxiety. Some days are way worse than others. I really feel the only thing that helps mellow me out and helps me relax is the Ativan. Over the weekend I felt something coming on and took an Ativan and within an hour felt relaxed and somewhat "normal". Does anyone know how long it takes before the Paxil kicks in and starts working the way it's supposed to? I get down on myself having to relay on meds (Ativan) to be "ok". But, if it works then I will continue to take them!

SSRI's can take a month or so to totally kick in and sometimes then you may need a dosage change. There is no need to worry yet. When will you see your Dr. again?
