Unhappy constant colds and flu from Paxil?

I have been on Paxil 7 years. I am tapering off of it now because it stopped working and turned against me.
For the last 3 years I have gotten every virus going around, and had a cold or flu more almost constantly. I have read that Paxil/SSRIs can be the cause. I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem?

Re: constant colds and flu from Paxil?

No, I haven't experienced this. I've taken Paxil for nearly 6 yrs. for anxiety and don't seem to ever get sick. Maybe one cold a year but that's normal.
Did the Paxil poop out or did something change in your life that caused you to have more anxiety?
