By the way, you have to be very careful combining an SSRI with a TCA. There is an interaction that increases the TCA in the body and for some, that increase can be toxic/lethal.
Also, Paxil pharamacokinetics are funny in that increases in dose are not linearally related to blood levels, in other words, if you increase the dose from 10 to 20 mg, it does more than increase your blood levels twice as much. ?maybe 3 or 4x as much? Consider a smaller increase, eg to 15mg or less. It comes in liquid so even smaller increments can be used.
