Is it safe to stop taking Paxil (paroxetine) after using it for 10 years?

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.
