Maybe yes- maybe no: There is a possibility for longer erection as a side effect of paxil, (paroxetine) but it does not have this effect on all men.

Discontinuation : I assume you are experiencing a discontinuation syndrome from abruptly stopping the medication. This is characterized by flu-like symptoms, tingling in fingertips or a sense of derealization. Generally, these symptoms improve in 5 to 7 days. Although not the worst of the ssri's, Paxil (paroxetine) has a fairly strong discontinuation syndrome. Side effects produced while taking disappate w/in 7 to 14days of sto.

Depends: Each person's symptoms are different and depend on your system, how long you were taking the medication, etc. I would expect that mild withdraw symptoms could persist for several weeks. If they are moderate to severe, your physician can reintroduce the medication at a very low dose and step you down more slowly.
