Thanks for the question and coming here. I would like to say that your physician should have increased the dose of Remeron to 30mg OD instead of starting you on Paxil but now you have started so you should continue taking 10mg Paxil. If there is a need your physician can increase dose of Paxil to 20mg OD which can be helpful for your depression and anxiety. It seems you are suffering for Mixed Anxiety and depression. Your physician can also refer you to CBT which is cognitive behavior therapy which can be helpful for anxiety and dression. Please click positive rating hopefully excellent. I will be happy to continue further and do everything I can to provide you with the service you seek. Don't worry if you forget anything you can always come back to me. Best wishesDr. Amir Javed
