paroxetine is for life?
I was recently prescribed paroxetine for depression and anxiety.

My question is, how long should I expect to be on this medication?

Is it permanent? Or only until I feel better.

I don’t want to take it my whole life.

Depends on you and your doctor. Although the Doctor decides which medicine you take at the end you decide to continue treatment or quit.

I have been on and off antidepressants for about 5 years now and maybe will have to take one for life. Im really tired of getting depressed, its exhausting and takes a toll on your health
