Paxil Antidepressant

Paxil® (paroxetine hydrochloride) is a prescription antidepressant approved to treat several conditions affecting the brain, including depression.
 
As an antidepressant, Paxil works by helping to block the reuptake of a chemical in the brain called serotonin. This medication is part of a class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Several clinical studies have shown Paxil to be effective at treating depression in adults. Also, a long-term study has shown that it can help prevent depression relapse.
 
The drug comes in tablet and liquid form, and it is usually taken once a day. Paxil tablets are available in four strengths:
 
The liquid form is available in one strength -- Paxil oral suspension 10 mg per 5 mL (10 mg per teaspoonful).
