Under doctors advice: Paxil (paroxetine) is an effective antidepressant medication. When no longer depressed, and when utilizing another treatment method (counseling, exercise, meditation, self help reading, etc.), and having taken the Paxil (paroxetine) for at least 4 months, and no major holidays or anniversaries of significant or traumatic events are approaching and you have your doctor's permission and supervision, it is ok to taper off.

Is it safe to stop taking Paxil (paroxetine) after using it for 10 years?
2 doctor answers • 8 doctors weighed in

Possibly yes: Although not an addictive substance like a narcotic, suddenly stopping a drug like Paxil (paroxetine) after long term use can cause problems. It is best to discuss this with your doctor and work out a schedule to withdraw the medication gradually from your body. This will avoid sudden reoccurance of symptoms for which the medication was given in the first place.
