Paxil Profile:

Paroxetine is used to treat mental depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder (also known as social phobia), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Paroxetine belongs to a group of medicines known as selective serotonin re uptake inhibitors (SSRIs). These medicines are thought to work by increasing the activity of the chemical serotonin in the brain.

Take Paxil only as directed by your doctor to benefit your condition as much as possible. Do not take more of it, do not take it more often, and do not take it for a longer time than your doctor ordered.

Paroxetine may be taken with or without food or on a full or empty stomach. However, if your doctor tells you to take the medicine a certain way, take it exactly as directed.

You may have to take Paxil for several weeks before you begin to feel better. Your doctor should check your progress at regular visits during this time. Also, if you are taking Paxil for depression, you will probably need to continue taking it for at least 6 months to help prevent the depression from returning.
