I am a 28 year old male and a couple of years ago i used Paxil for around 1.5 years. Now i really want to know if this can have a possible impact on the fertility once stopted with this medication (after +-2 years)?
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! Dr B
