What is Paxil?

Paxil is a brand name for the medication paroxetine, which belongs to a class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Paroxetine is primarily used to treat depression, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD).

Generic paroxetine is a medication that contains the same active ingredient as the brand-name drug Paxil. It is typically prescribed for the same conditions as Paxil, including depression, anxiety disorders, OCD, PTSD, and PMDD. Generic medications are often more affordable than brand-name drugs because they are produced once the patent for the original drug expires, allowing other manufacturers to produce it.

Generic paroxetine works in the same way as Paxil, by increasing the levels of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that plays a key role in regulating mood, emotions, and behavior.

Like Paxil, generic paroxetine may cause side effects such as nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth, sweating, headache, dizziness, insomnia, and sexual dysfunction. It's important to take generic paroxetine exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider and to report any side effects or concerns to them.

Common Side Effects of Paxil

Some of the more common side effects of Paxil include:

  1. Nausea
  2. Drowsiness
  3. Dry mouth
  4. Sweating
  5. Headache
  6. Dizziness
  7. Insomnia
  8. Sexual dysfunction (such as decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, or difficulty achieving orgasm)

It's important to note that not everyone will experience these side effects, and some may experience different or additional side effects.


Paroxetine should not be abruptly discontinued, as it may lead to withdrawal symptoms. It's important to reduce the dosage under medical supervision gradually.

It may increase the risk of suicidal thoughts or behaviors, particularly in young adults or adolescents.

Paroxetine should be used with caution in individuals with a history of seizures, bipolar disorder, or liver or kidney problems.

It may interact with other medications, including other antidepressants, so it's essential to inform your doctor about all medications you are taking.

Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their healthcare provider before using paroxetine, as it may pose risks to the fetus or nursing infant.


How long does it take for Paxil to start working?

It may take several weeks for Paxil to reach its full therapeutic effect. However, some individuals may notice improvement in symptoms within the first few weeks of treatment.

Can Paxil be taken with other medications?

Paxil can interact with certain medications, including other antidepressants, so it's crucial to inform your doctor about all medications, supplements, and herbal products you are taking before starting Paxil.

Can Paxil be used for anxiety?

Yes, Paxil is approved for the treatment of various anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), social anxiety disorder (SAD), and panic disorder.

What should I do if I miss a dose of Paxil?

If you miss a dose of Paxil, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it's almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not double the dose to catch up.

Is it safe to drink alcohol while taking Paxil?

It's generally recommended to avoid or limit alcohol consumption while taking Paxil, as alcohol can worsen certain side effects such as drowsiness or dizziness.

I've been a Canadian Med Center customer for about 6 years now. In all that time there was never once that I considered taking my business elsewhere. They do a great job and the people they contract with are also super.

Always appreciate their prompt service but especially appreciate their hanging in there when there was difficulty getting my doctor to renew my prescription!
