Negative Effects of Paxil

Paxil® (paroxetine hydrochloride) is a prescription drug approved for treating certain conditions within the brain, including panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and depression.
Although most people respond well to this medication, there are some potential negative effects of Paxil. As an antidepressant, Paxil can increase the risk of suicidal thoughts or behavior. You should notify your healthcare provider immediately if you notice any changes in symptoms or new symptoms, such as anxiety, hostility, or hallucinations.
Before starting this antidepressant, be sure to tell your healthcare provider about all other drugs you are taking. Taking Paxil with certain other medications can increase your risk of a dangerous group of symptoms called serotonin syndrome or a dangerous irregular heart rhythm called QT prolongation.
Some side effects with Paxil, while occurring infrequently, are potentially serious and should be reported immediately to your healthcare provider. Seek medical attention right away if you experience difficulty sleeping, panic attacks, or a fast heart rate.
