Treating Panic Disorder and SAD With Paroxetine Controlled Release

Paroxetine Controlled Release Use for Panic Disorder
People with panic disorder have recurrent, unexpected feelings of extreme fear and dread that strike for no apparent reason. These feelings of fear and dread can cause a racing heart, rapid breathing, sweating, and shakiness. These "attacks" can send people to the hospital believing that they are having a heart attack. A panic attack may even occur when the person is not in a situation that would normally create stress, anxiety, or fear.
Paroxetine controlled release is approved for the treatment of panic disorder in adults. Panic disorder is a form of anxiety, and antidepressants (such as paroxetine controlled release) are often useful in treating anxiety disorders.
Paroxetine Controlled Release for Social Anxiety Disorder
Social anxiety disorder, also called social phobia, is a disorder characterized by overwhelming anxiety and excessive self-consciousness in everyday social situations. People with social anxiety disorder have a persistent, intense, and chronic fear of being watched and judged by others and of being embarrassed or humiliated by their own actions. Their fear may be so severe that it interferes with:
  • Social relationships
  • Work or school
  • Other ordinary activities.
While many people with social anxiety disorder recognize that their fear of being around people may be excessive or unreasonable, they are unable to overcome it. They often worry for days or weeks in advance of a dreaded situation.
Treatment for social anxiety disorders includes cognitive behavior therapy (a type of short-term therapy) and medications. Paroxetine controlled release is one of the medications approved to treat social anxiety disorder.
