I really need some help here. My partner has been on 50mg Paroxetine for 16 years and wants to come off it because of the side-effects it has on his sexual function.
He has consulted his GP today and she advised that he go on to another antidepressant which will
hopefully have less side-effects in this area.
I am concerned that he is being advised to reduce too quickly before he is transferred to another tablet. I feel that the programme of reducing by 10mg per week for the next 3 weeks is way too fast.
That would bring him down to 20mg a day!!!
Am I wrong to be concerned, to my mind this is too fast. I would be grateful of any advice you can offer.
