Thanks momo :)   Your description of yourself without your meds sounds exactly like me.  I go from anxious to depressed to angry and fly off the handle often, sometimes screaming at my fiance about trivial things.    I am on day 3 of the paxil and already I don't have any desire to scream or fight, I feel like I'm on a more even keel.  However, I'm spacey and a little unmotivated.  Hopefully that changes soon, I'd like to get on with my life.      I haven''t noticed...

I have an 8.5 month old son and have been having issues with anxiety since he was a few weeks old.  I saw my primary care doctor last week, and am seeing a counselor in a few days.   I was prescribed Paxil (10 mg) by my pcp, but have been too afraid to take it since I am still nursing.
