Paxil Withdrawal and Tapering Help

Approximately 50% of patients reported discontinuation symptoms with Paxil, starting within two days of stopping the antidepressant. Our NonProfit has been helping people withdraw safely for over 14 Years. Contact the Prescription Drug Experts for help.

Paxil is one of the most potent of the SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) and has shown a high incidence of dependence. Paxil is associated with a high incidence and severity of withdrawal symptoms (discontinuation syndrome) and therefore it is recommended to taper gradually to help minimize the discomfort. Contact Us if you need help to taper off of Paxil or have questions.

Paxil history and info

Paxil was derived from Paroxetine, which was originally developed by Ferrosan, a Danish company who began researching the compound in the 1960s. By the 1970s Ferroson developed a paroxetine formula, called the ‘Buus-Lassen compound’, and patented it in the United States in 1977. SmithKline Pharmaceuticals bought the rights and research in 1980, made revisions and patented the new paroxetine formula in 1986.

The clinical trials were performed in under-developed countries and the results were called less-than-desired by industry insiders. SmithKline was able to compile sufficient positive data to obtain an FDA approval for the brand name Paxil in 1992 and by 2007 was the 5th most prescribed antidepressant drug in the United States. 

GlaxoSmithKline marketed the drug extensively as “non-habit forming” and yet this was proven to be false by numerous experts. More recently FDA scientists and other research institutions discovered that taking Paxil during pregnancy could dramatically increase the risk of serious birth defects including heart, lung, brain and spine defects, skull deformities, club foot, and abdominal defects. The FDA issued a Public Health Advisory for the use of Paxil during pregnancy and deemed a Category D pregnancy risk was required, meaning that there is clear risk to a human fetus when Paxil is taken during gestation. This category change, Public Health Advisory and notice to physicians all came after the drug had been on the market for more than 10 years. 

The manufacturer of Paxil was issued more than 40 warnings from drug regulatory agencies in seven countries concerning hazardous consequences to Paxil use, including Paxil Withdrawal. Consumers across the country claim they have suffered severe Paxil Withdrawal symptoms. 

Paxil is associated with a high incidence and severity of withdrawal symptoms (discontinuation syndrome) and therefore it is recommended to taper gradually to minimize the discomfort.
