Am I having a setback?

I have been diagnosed with PTSD and I take 30mg of Paxil. I am moving from one state to another this coming weekend. As the time to move gets closer, the more I want to be left alone. I don't want to answer my telephone, I get irritated, agitated, frustrated, and confused more. My nightmares have returned and I don't know how to make them stop. Please serious answers only.

Answer:
What you are experiencing is Stress. Moving is stressful since you are setting out to deal with the "great unknown". Stress aggrevates PTSD, especially if you do nothing more then take paxil for it. PTSD needs to be worked out with the help of a counselor, it takes time to do that but its well worth it rather then trying to keep the symptoms under wraps.
Go see the physician who is prescribing the Paxil. Tell them what is happening to you. It would not be surprising to have symptoms re-emerge with a major change coming. Make sure you are referred to someone in your new state, so you can be followed for the PTSD and the medication you are taking. Seriously. Don't wait to get even worse. Get some help now.
You have anxiety which is normal for PTSD pills only help make things copable. Slowly you have to find ways of modifying the ways stress or anxiety is dealt with.
Moving to another state would be stressful and scary, so this is bringing your symptoms back, somewhat.

Have you talked to your doctor about this?

I'm not sure what you mean by setback, or what ood it is to know the answer is yes or no.

What you're going through is certainly understandable.

If you feel it's incapacitated you, you need to talk to a professional.

Otherwise, the symptoms will subside as you settle in your new space.
