Inadvertant "Cold Turkey" from Paroxetine
I have been taking Paxil/Seroxat/Paroxeteine for 8 years.
Earlier this year I undertook a reduction plan from 30mg. I attempted this before dripping from 30mg down to 20mg. I got some serious withdrawal effects so was reinstated to 30mg by my GP.
I have, with the help of my GP managed to get down trouble free to 20mg.
I have been really ill with the flu for the last 3 weeks and have a horrible chest infection.
I have not taken any meds for the last three weeks.  Stupid this may be but I was ill they were the last thing on my mind.
I also had only taken 1 15mg doe in the week prior to that. Not sure why this happened either, Can we put it down to a bad memory etc.
I am still suffering from the fallout form this flu and still cannot discern this from the paroxetine withdrawal. So this may be a bonus.
My question is....having effectively gone "cold turkey" from this drug how much longer can I expect to have to put up with further withdrawal issues, i.e. have I done the worst of it now.

I know it's not your fault but going ''cold turkey'' is never good,your withdrawl symptoms can last from days to months,you need to go back to the doctor,you need not suffer like this.I had severe withdrawls from benzos & it nearly killed me.
