Paroxetine 25 mg per day is good enough an adult dose to show response... For how long have you been taking it?? Is it no response... or some response.. if no response we change drug... if some response we augment.. Basically paroxetine has also shown good response in literature in GAD(generalised anxiety) and panic both...
