I have been on sroxat for a couple of months, did not agree with me. Have stopped, how long might the sexual dysfunction last?
Dr Vikas :

Hello

Customer:

good afternoon Dr Viaks

Dr Vikas :

Since when you are not taking Seroxat (Paroxetine)?

Customer:

sorry, wrong spelling

Dr Vikas :

Good afternoon :)

Customer:

I had the last dose on Friday. I had been taking 20 mg for around three weeks, and had one dose of 30. I slept for 48 hours....

Dr Vikas :

Seroxat is a sedative medicine so this is possible as some patients may experience significant sedation.

Dr Vikas :

In most cases, sexual side effect are gone within a month (1-4 weeks) after stopping the medicine as seen clinically.

Dr Vikas :

You need not to worry as sexual side effects are usually reversible and go away after stopping it.

Customer:

Sensitivity is returning gradually, I had taken Seroxat for around nine weeks....

Customer:

I had noticed the word reversible before in a blog....last question, might it need something to reverse it , in extremis?

Dr Vikas :

I don't think that you will be needing anything extra for it.

Dr Vikas :

just don't worry about it a bit. :)

Customer:

Dr Vikas :

You are most welcome.

Dr Vikas :
