Hi, I am new to this forum. I have been on 20mg of Paxil for well over a year.I felt great up until a month ago, my Dr siad I could go to 40mg., does anyone know if that will kick in right away or do you have to wait the 4 to 6 weeks,like when first starting? Thanks Sandie

Hi you'll have to wait for the new dosage to take effect for a couple weeks, probably you'll get unwanted side effects on the first days of upping the dosage so I'd titrate slowly going up to 30mg then 40mg after one week.

paxil kicks me immediately but this is unusual! :)
majority of people have to wait for 2 or 3 weeks. :)

Well you should notice effect after some 2hours really, but after couple of days a mood boost, but it still takes time like above posters said, for it to reach full effect... Mind n body. Specially if u come from "hit the wall" and is a stressed wrecked...:) Takes time to heal.

Some might experience incressed anxiety and well, less mood boost...just so you know...

Good luck!
