    Hi Tweety

    Usually you have to wait a while to see an improvement. How long have you been taking Paroxetine? I am on Sertraline and it took five weeks for me to feel any better. Luckily I never had to have an increased dose, but I know from people who have that it's like when you take it initially - you can end up feeling worse before you feel better. I thought they were never going to work for me as it seemed like I was at rock bottom for ages, but I got there in the end. Give it time. You can always look under the NMP forum at Medications-Paroxetine to view other users experience of this drug. There is also quite good support on those forums when you are struggling.

    Hope you feel an improvement soon.

    You do have to wait a bit to see an improvement.

    But you wont have the symptoms of starting a new drug. So it should be straightforward and you wont get the side effects you get when starting a new med.

    Give it time. It will give you the boost you need!
