PAXIL, SEX, and DOCTOR IN SEVERAL HOURS: HELP!

Hello All,
I am a 20 year old female.
I have been taking 30mg of Paxil for 5 months.
I have begun weening myself (without consulting my doctor) for two weeks.

My Question:
What specific questions would you ask your doctors about quitting Paxil?
I am most worried about sexual side effect. Are these long-term? I would love to hear stories from other women. Reading tonight has scared me. Will I never be able to orgasm?

Since a doctor put you on Paxil I will assume that you have been diagnosed with Major Depressive dissorder.

I would ask your doctor: When the drug is completly out of my system, how long do you think it will be before I relaps? Also ask him: What are my chances of having a full relaps of my condition given that I am no longer on the medication?

Regarding the sexual side effects that you experienced, they will go away once the drug is washed out of your system.

I wish I could tell you that Major Depression just goes away, but the reality is that it almost never goes away.
