Paxil is an antidepressant, and like all current ADs, takes 2 weeks or a bit more to show its full benefits in terms of relieving depression. It is widely used, considered as safe as any other. It can also help relioeve anxiety. Alzam is of no benefit whatever in Depression, but is used to treat anxiety. It is a benzo tranquillizer, and quite different to the ADs, working very differently, and producing sedation within 15 to 30 minutes or so.
ADS need to be taken consistently to build up its useful effects ; benzo's like Alzam can be taken intermittently, when you feel very anxious.

Hi, I have been on both and Alzam works in 30 minutes but doesnt last that long and Paxil starts working in about 2 weeks. But everyone responds differently. Good luck :)
