The smart advice would be to taper according to doctors orders. That being said it really depends on the med(s) you are on and the duration you have been on it. Cold turkey either Paxil or Effexor you are asking for problems and its not pleasant also possibly deadly. I have gone cold turkey on Celexa, Remeron, Zyprexa, Paxil (I was in a hospital) and for the most part with no problems. On the other hand I have missed a single dose of Effexor and Wellbutrin and paid heavily for it. If I went cold turkey off all of my meds right now I would be either in a hospital or dead by week end, my body is so accustomed to all the "help" it gets I don't think it could survive without it. Listen to your doctor and take the safe route

take care
