Common Reactions to Paroxetine Controlled Release

Common Paroxetine Controlled Release Side Effects

Paroxetine controlled release has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occurred in a group of people taking the drug were documented and then compared to the side effects that occurred in another group of people taking a placebo (a "sugar pill" that does not contain any active ingredients). As a result, it was possible to see what side effects occurred, how often they appeared, and how they compared to the group not taking the medicine. 
 
In these studies, some of the most common side effects of paroxetine controlled release included:
 
  • Headaches -- in up to 27 percent of people
