Thanks for your query. Pexep is paroxetine
, a SSRI
class of anti-idepressant and anxiolytic drug. Let me reassure you that these drugs are not addictive. However, they need to be continued even for 3-4 years in many cases of anxiety
disorders. Hence, you would need to ensure that you are compliant to the medication and do not stop the drug without the psychiatrists's advice. The drug is usually tapered off slowly over a one month period so that you do not experience any rebound anxiety symptoms. Wish you good health.
