PAXIL CR (paroxetine hydrochloride) is an orally administered psychotropic drug with a chemical structure unrelated to other selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors or to tricyclic, tetracyclic, or other available antidepressant or anti panic agents. Paxil is available as a pill that is to be taken orally. It can also be found in its generic form, as Paroxetine. To purchase Paxil, you must obtain a valid prescription from your doctor. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.
Ask your doctor if Paxil is safe to take during pregnancy, while breastfeeding, or if you become pregnant during your treatment. Tell your healthcare provider about all prescription, over-the-counter, and herbal medications you are taking before beginning treatment with Paxil. Advise your doctor of other medical conditions you have so it can be determined if Paxil is right for your situation.
