Paxil Medication: Miracle Drug or Masked Marauder?

Paxil Medication Overview 

Paxil Medication: Why is this medication prescribed? 

Front Image -paxil ( PAROXETINE HYDROCHLORIDE)Paxil medication has been found to relieve a variety of emotional problems. Physicians frequently prescribe the Paxil medication for serious depressions which interfere with an individual's ability to function. Serious depression's frequently include change in appetite and sleep patterns,  persistent low mood, loss of interest in people and activities, decreased sex drive, feelings of guilt or worthlessness, suicidal thoughts, difficulty concentrating, and thinking which may slow down. 

The Paxil medication has also been found to be effective in the treatment of obsessive compulsive disorder, which is a disease marked by unwanted, but stubborn, persistent thoughts or unreasonable rituals you feel compelled to repeat. 

In addition the Paxil medication is prescribed for panic disorder, a crippling emotional problem characterized by sudden panic attacks of at least four of the following symptoms: palpitations, sweating, shaking, and numbness, chills or hot flashes, shortness of breath, a feeling of choking, chest pain, nausea or abdominal distress, dizziness or faintness, feelings of unreality or detachment, and a fear of losing control, or of dying. 


Paxil medication is also prescribed for generalized anxiety disorder, a disease which includes excess anxiety and worries that persists for at least six months and can't be easily controlled.  Generalized anxiety disorder is usually accompanied by at least three of the following symptoms: restlessness or feeling keyed-up or on-edge, a tendency to tire easily, difficulty concentrating or spells when the mind goes blank, irritability, muscle tension or sleep disturbance. 

Paxil can also be the treatment of choice for social anxiety disorder (commonly known as social phobia), a condition of marked shyness and fears of humiliation so intense that they interfere with an individual's work and/or social life. 

Finally, the Paxil medication is also prescribed to manage post traumatic stress disorder, which is a crippling disorder which sometimes develops as a result of being the victim of or experiencing a violent and/or traumatic encounter.  Symptoms are very stubborn and frequently do not go away easily, and may be triggered at any time.  Symptoms of this disorder include unwanted memories and dreams, intense distress when confronted with reminders of the event, a general numbing of interesting and enjoyment, jumpiness, irritability, poor sleep, and loss of concentration. 

Paxil medication is from the group of medications referred to as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIís). SSRIís are very popular medications due to their high level of effectiveness and limited severity of side effects.
