Paxil is an antidepressant drug used to treat depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder. It belongs to a class of drugs called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and works by affecting chemicals in the brain.
Always follow your doctor’s instructions and use Paxil exactly as prescribed.
Don’t crush, break or chew tablets.
Suddenly discontinuing Paxil may cause withdrawal symptoms. Talk to your doctor if you plan to stop taking Paxil.
Don’t take Paxil if you’ve used an MAOI in the past 14 days.
Young people may have thoughts of suicide when they first start taking an antidepressant like Paxil. Monitor behavior and symptoms closely.
Talk to your doctor immediately if you become pregnant. Paxil may cause birth defects and complications during pregnancy. Do not breast-feed while taking Paxil.
Using NSAIDs (aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen) while taking Paxil can increase your risk of bleeding.
Before taking Paxil, inform your doctor if you have any of the following:
Liver or kidney disease
Heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke
Low sodium levels
Common side effects of Paxil include:

What if I become pregnant while on Paxil?
Paxil can cause birth defects and complications. If you’re actively trying to get pregnant, talk to your doctor about switching to a different medication. If you discover you’re pregnant while taking Paxil, talk to your doctor immediately. Suddenly discontinuing Paxil can cause withdrawal symptoms that you may need help managing.

What's the difference between generic drugs and brand name drugs?
What's the difference between the branded products you sell and the ones I get locally?
The branded drugs we sell are chemically and therapeutically no different from the ones you get in your local pharmacy. They both generally come from the same exact manufacturer. Generally, the main difference* is in the packaging and the price. Our packaging may be different from what you get locally, but we're also much cheaper.
* Other differences may include differences in trade name, form, and general appearance.
Why are there packaging differences?
Due to differences in government regulation, different countries have different packaging requirements. For example, a product in Canada (or any other country) will have different packaging than the same product in the US even though both drugs are chemically and therapeutically equivalent and are generally manufactured by the same exact company.
Why are your drugs so much cheaper?
Due to government price controls, medications from Canada and many other countries are often significantly cheaper than in the United States. Also, other countries may have more affordable generic versions of drugs, which may not yet be available in the US.
