Hello zoomba. The withdrawl symptoms can last several weeks. I currently take Paxil (40mg) and once previously, several years ago. It really (the withdrawls) and thier severity vary from person to person. I suggest a slow gradual taper, that will help ease with the withdrawls. Best wishes and regards, pledge
