Hi there,

I have a good friend who has been taking Paxil for 16 years, doses between 60mg and now 50mg per day. He was prescribed this medication for anxiety and depression when he successfully stopped drinking alcohol.

He remains alcohol free to this day which is to be applauded.

However one of the most cruel side-effects of Paxil is that it prevents ejaculation. Has anyone found themselves in a similar situation?

Could reducing the dosage on certain days when he planning intercourse help him?

Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated
