Patient : My husband was recently prescribed Paxil. 10mg, and haS had an increase in drinking and incontinence since his dose was increased. Due to this, he has stopped taking the drug, but after 48 hours, the "side effect" has not gone away. How long does paxil stay in the body? Are thesetypical side effects? He was aware that alcohol and paxil is not recommended, but craves it.
