Hi doctor. I am 21 years old. I was diagnosed 2 years back with obsessive-compulsive disorder. I followed treatment with the help of a psychiatrist who included cognitive behavioral therapy and medication. of medication as many times as I tried to stop paroxetine (seroxat) in collaboration with my psychiatrist of course my body reacted with nausea dizziness and other similar symptoms. So I take a seroxat 20 mg one day and in the next day half alternatevely on my own initiative. This has been going on for the last few months as I was getting one and a half at first and then one. I have been taking them for two years now. I cant stop taking the medicine because I am afraid of the symptoms. What can I do to deal with the symptoms of the drug cut after I have completed the treatment? Thank you in advance for your response.
