I started suffering panic attacks & depression since mid 2016 & started taking paroxetine since 2017. My highest dose was 25 mg paxil cr & then it didn't help much so my doc prescribed me fluvoxamine 100 mg /day but I couldn't bear the side effects & my doc. Again prescribed me paroxetine cr & then I again couldn't bear the side effects but it was paroxetine cr this time so my doc. Decreased my dosage from 25 mg to 12.5 but its not working as expected & the higher doses suck up .currently I am on 12.5 mg paxil. I have been prescribed it after dinner but I changed the timing from dinner to lunch due to some reason & its ramdhan (a holy fasting month) so I changed my timing from lunch to morning but I am getting extremely depressed sometimes & my head starts aching, my body produces allot of fatigue, I can't concentrate over things. Even if I feel a lil better & then a stressful situation arrives it becomes impossible for me to cope up with stress so I am also bad at stress management.

Stress patients worry too much. Stress in today’s day & age where stress is high, feelings of frustration can emerge. It is our perception that can change our current negative situation into a healthy & positive one. Another way of perceiving these feelings of frustration can be by looking at them as an opportunity to push ourselves to go that little extra mile until we achieve our objective. However, there are times when we all can go around in circles; and being in this space can be quite upsetting and lead to feelings of dissatisfaction, frustration and can even cloud our mind and judgment. Exercise one hr daily, oil massage body, hobby, support from friends family, help others, weekly holiday you can take paroxetine 25 mg 1 0 1.
