Paroxetine CR

Paroxetine controlled release (Paxil CR®) is a medication used to treat social anxiety disorder, depression, and panic disorder, among other conditions. It belongs to a class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Available in the form of a tablet, the medication is generally taken once a day. The tablets should be swallowed whole; do not break, chew, or crush them.
 
Drowsiness, dry mouth, and insomnia are some of the most common side effects of this medication. However, it is generally well tolerated, and most people are able to take paroxetine controlled release without any problems. A few of the medical conditions you should let your healthcare provider know about before starting treatment include kidney problems, epilepsy, and bipolar disorder (or a family history of bipolar disorder).
