I would always want to add, to medication like Paxil, Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, CBT, which would help you more specifically to identify the sources aof and triggers for, your anxiety, and to help you cope bettwe with them, and to learn to relax when you need to. YOu seem to be describing Agoraphobia, which responds well to the combination of CBT and medication such as Paxil or several others. I don't really see why the changes in your Paxil preparation and dosage would necessarily have caused this, unless the dose fell below the level effective for you. WHY is an obvious but surprisingly often not a useful question. You can free yourself from these panics without ever knowing why. IF you are being treated by a GP< it might be wise to ask for a referral to a specialist shrink practising CBT, for a second opinion
