Honestly, from all I've read/heard about Paxil, I'd stay away from it and try something like Prozac or Zoloft first. They've been around longer, are safer, and have less side effects.
Anti-anxietys/anti-depressents are tricky, what works for one person doesn't work for another, kwim? I have panic disorder with mild OCD, and Prozac didn't do a thing for me, even at the highest doseage (I tried it for six months), however, a low doseage of Zoloft works wonders, it's been amazing!
I had a dr. who prescribed me the Ativan, Xanax, Clonipin, in addition to the Prozac I was taking. I can't believe he rxed all those drugs for me to take at the same time!!! I never did take the Ativan, it scared me way too much.
