I don't think any of the SSRIs actually CAUSE anxiety. Perhaps your situation is more anxiety-related than depression-related. Again, Paxil seems to be the "flavor of the month" for anxiety related mood disorders. Anywho, ask your PDOC for a benzo to help "take the edge off" if anxiety IS a side effect for you with curent meds. These Docs just seem to think we are all VANILLA, and respond all the same. No two people respond exactly the same to ANY med. E.G. paradoxical effects such as stimulation from an opiate. Brain chemistry is the final frontier for bio-chemical research. There is so much yet to learn, the first of course, is that mental illness is not our fault, or something we choose, or some failing on our part.
