Brief Answer:
Not a habit forming drug

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Let me assure you that Paxidep (paroxetine) is a non-habit-forming or non-addictive medicine. In other words, you need not worry about withdrawal symptoms on trying to refrain from this medicine. All you have is a mental attachment which you need to let go. It will need you to be confident enough to let go. However, I would recommend you to do it under the guidance of your treating physician.

Let me know if I could help further.
