Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that it is unlikely that Paxil will have an effect this far out.  Theoretically sperm are manufacture continuously, and it takes about 3 months to "build" them -- so all of the new ones should be OK.
IF you are trying to conceive and it is taking longer than a year, you might consider having your sperm tested, but otherwise, I wouldn't worry.
Good luck!
