Slower taper easier: "Flu" complaints are not uncommon. It depends on how quickly the dose is tapered. It is much more likely if the medication is stopped all at once. The timing of these symptoms depends on the half life of the medication. Short acting meds like paxil, (paroxetine) zoloft etc have more issues than long acting meds such as prozac.

See your doctor: That could be acute sinusitis, together with the other symptoms you have, you don't need to have sinus pain when you've got sinusitis, so better run it by your doctor, goodluck
