    I' not sure of what you mean by, shaking inside.


    Some of Paxil's side effects could be construed to fit what you are saying, this is taken directly from Health Central's about Paxil, which you can find here:


    Tell your doctor immediately if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur:

    • unusual or severe mental/mood changes (e.g., agitation, thoughts of suicide)
    • shakiness (tremor)
    • restlessness
    • inability to keep still
    • decreased interest in sex
    • changes in sexual ability
    • blurred vision
    • numbness/tingling

    There is more information about Paxil at that link.

    Contact your doctor, they may need to adjust the dosage, or another drug.
