Have been on Paxil 10mg for 5yrs and new (past year) Dr told me that even though I just had bloodwork, they cannot refill until I see Dr again. I have seen this Dr 5 times in past year for other things. I have 5 doses left but Dr can't see me for almost 30 days. I know I am not supposed to stop taking Paxil suddenly. Dr says it is a controlled substance, so I looked it up and that is a flat out lie. I am on Medi-cal past year due to acworkers comp injury, but surgeries are finished and I am only on my regular thyroid, high blood pressure meds and Paxil. Can Dr lie about Paxil and withold it, for 30 days knowing that it is a drug u shouldn't abruptly stop? I am pretty miffed as I suffer depression and social anxiety

The doctor can set his/her own policy on how often you need to be seen to obtain refills, and going beyond that, they are not obligated to prescribe anything or continue prescribing existing medications. Medical professionals are only required to treat you, if you are in life threatening danger, and even then, they are only required to treat you, until you are stable.

So, the answer is yes, regardless of what may happen in the future, if you are stable and safe, at the moment, they don't have to issue refills on anything, fit you in for an appointment fast, or etc.

If you find yourself experiencing severe problems, from running out, you can always go to your nearest ER or urgent care for assistance.

The U.S. FDA lists the typical withdrawal effects of Paxil as possibly including nausea, diarrhea, rebound pain, rebound depression, anxiety and chills.

I'm sorry, I know this isn't good news and doesn't really help you, but this is the way the laws currently stand in the U.S.

Is there anything else I can help with?
