Psychiatrist
Based on your clinical history, your doctor plans the type of medicine and it's dose and duration. For first episode of anxiety/ depression/ panic, the usual maintenance phase is 6 months of asymptomatic period, after which medicines can be gradually tapered. But treatment may need to continue longer depending on severity and frequency of episodes. To take any decision to change medication or stop them, several factors have to be taken in account for which regular follow up with your psychiatrist is important. For second opinion, seek a proper consultation with another psychiatrist and take along your previous prescriptions. There is scope of increasing dose of Paroxetine.

Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
Psychiatrist
You seem to have Recurrent Depressive Disorder. It's advisable to see your psychiatrist before starting medication. It's also suggested that you undergo Thyroid test and serum levels of vitamin B12 and D3 which increase vulnerability to depression. For better coping with negative life circumstances, adjunctive psychological intervention is also recommended.
