When you do stop taking the medication, withdrawal is going to occur as your body tries to adjust to the sudden removal of the drug from your system.

There are many different symptoms that can occur with a Paxil withdrawal, and they can vary significantly in terms of intensity and how long they last depending on your specific history with the medication prior to stopping.

  • Emotional Instability

  • Depression
