‹< Paxil’s Pharmacology |
|US brand name: Paxil|
| Generic name: paroxetine |
Loved by those for whom it works, loathed by those who had to stop taking it and/or whose sex life vanished, Paxil is one of the top meds people love to hate. Usually better for anxiety than depression. Because it is so potent you shouldn’t consider it as the first med to try, unless you’re too anxious to leave your house without being drugged stupid with a benzodiazepine.

Paxil, and all other drug names on this page and used throughout the site, are the trademarks of someone else. Paxil’s PI Sheet will probably have the name of the manufacturer and trademark owner (they’re not always the same company) at or near the very bottom. Or ask Google who the owner is. The way pharmaceutical companies buy each other and swap products like Monopoly™ real estate, the ownership of the trademark may have changed without my noticing. It may of changed hands by the time you finished reading this article.
