I was put on Paxil in Oct. of last year. For about the first month I felt great! I think it was more that I wanted to believe it was working, not sure if it ACTUALLY was doing anything. Over the coarse of about 6 months I was bunped up to the max. dosage, 60mg. I can honestly say that it took the edge off of my depression but I was definatly still really depressed.
