July 30 2014- Went on vacation- I took a 3 day bus ride, then a wk later, i took an 3 day bus back. On the way back all I was very anxious and had very negative thoughts. I had a panic attack on the bus so I took a 5mg of paxil. When i get back home, it didnt go away and havent slept in days. Anxiety, despression panic attacks got worse. Went to go see family doctor, now i am back on paxil 20mg daily.
Aug 10, 2014 - 5mg (on bus)
Aug 11, 2014 - 10mg (at home)
aug 12, 2014 - 20mg (after seeing dr)
