I have been taking Paxil for an anxiety disorder for the past 15 years. Lately I have been having some of the syptoms reapear. Has anyone else had this experience. Do medications stop working afterwhile. I was molested by my father from 12 years old to 17 years old. I have taken lots of couselling on this but it seems to come up each time I reach a new milestone in my life. I am having panic attacks around a person I have been friends with for about three years. We had lots of fun together but now I have anxiety for a couple of days after we do something together, I don't know if this is from the abuse or my meds have stopped working and need to be changed. I am going to ask for a referral to a pysciatrist but it usaully takes months to get in.Does anyone identify?
