Shift, You might want to look into trying lithium. I had the same problem until I realized I was bipolar. I use to take paxil alone and it was like riding a roller costar. When I would initially take the medication, I would feel good. My depression would lift and so would my social phobia to a great degree. That would last for a day or two and then I would get depressed. The interesting thing is that abrupt disconsolation of the paxil for a few days would bring that feeling back. What I was feeling was a hypo manic response induced by the paxil.

When antidepressants act as a switch, bipolar disorder should be suspect.

The first time I took Lithium I felt a response immediately. I could actually feel it pulling me out of the depression I was in. Now that I take it regularly, Depression is a thing of the past for me, and I can even take the paxil now for anxiety with out the ups and downs.
