Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. The increase in Paroxetine to 30mg should be beneficial to you as you have become tolerant to the 20mg dose after long-term use. It may take 4-6 weeks though for the benefits of the increased dose to be noticeable as your body has been so used to the 20mg dose, so I would recommend being patient and giving it time to circulate in your body.
I hope this helps to provide you some guidance on this issue. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns as I would be happy to continue assisting you regarding this issue

Typically after you increase the dose there are going to be temporary side effects like this that will only last for a few weeks as your body adjusts to the increased dose. So it should get better after another 2 weeks. If you are still feeling worse than most likely this is apathy and emotional numbness caused by too much Serotonin in the body and your doctor should consider switching you to another medication for your Anxiety and Panic.
