My son has been on paroxetine for a week, but is very worried about all the negative reports online from people who have had serious side effects from coming off the drug. Can anyone reassure us that they have had a positive experience of this?
All you're going to see is the people who had trouble with it, the ones doing fine aren't asking questions. These meds have to be tapered down before they are stopped and some people don't do that, then they have a problem. He shouldn't let that keep him from getting help.
