Then why the rush to get away from meds completely?
If it works, then run with it! But if you start backsliding, don't let this withdrawal put off trying something different (just as you don't want to put others off from trying paxil).
I've mentioned above and in some other threads that wellbutrin helped me get over my paxil withdrawal. It took 4-6 weeks to do it, but it really put the lid on any withdrawal symptoms I was feeling.
Just a thought...
