Hi there,

Over the past few weeks I have been watching my partner withdraw from Paroxetine at an alarmingly fast rate under the advice of his GP.

He came off from 50mg to nothing in 5 WEEKS!!! He was migrating to another AD Mirtazapine and he has been suffering terribly before my eyes.

Total despair has led him back to his GP who now has put him back to Paroxetine.

Am I the only one to be horrified at the lack of knowledge and back up facilities available in this area.

he received no help. counselling or advice on how to cope, just me doing research on line and on this forum.

Have we lost our NHS mental health services??? It would seem so. Has anyone out there been through a similar experience?
