I am writing on behalf of my husband, who has been taking
20 mg of Paxil
daily for a little over a year. He has been reducing his daily dosage in an effort to discontinue taking the medication. For the first week, he took 10 mg, then halfed those pills, then moved on to every other day, and so on. He is now in his 4th day with no Paxil whatsoever, and he is really suffering. He is very sensitive to light and sound, and both worsen the debilitating headhache he is suffering.
