So sorry to hear of your difficulties. They stir up similar frightening memories of my own. I weened off Paxil very slowly, much slower than you, but still had considerable withdrawals by day 3 after finally being totally off the drug. I found that 5mg or 10mg every other day or once every three days was just enough to get me through that tough time. Eventually it passed. I think it was about 3 weeks before I was finally free and clear. Unfortunately six months later I was just as bad off as before Paxil. So the saga continued. Many years and many drugs later, my miracle wonder drug has turned out to be Adrafinil. For me the serotonin route had been wrong all along.

Based on what I see in other peoples' posts, I get the impression that both Paxil and Effexor provide the most difficult withdrawals.
