Other Medications That React With Paxil

Pimozide (Orap)
Pimozide and Paxil should not be taken together, as the combination may cause a dangerous irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia) called QT prolongation. Do not take these two medications together.
 
Procyclidine (Kemadrin)
Paxil can increase the level of procyclidine in your blood, increasing your risk of side effects. Your healthcare provider may need to decrease your procyclidine dosage.
 
Risperidone (Risperdal)
Paxil can increase the level of risperidone in your blood, increasing your risk of side effects. Your healthcare provider may need to decrease your risperidone dose.
 
SSRI or SNRI Antidepressants
Taking Paxil with other SSRI or SNRI antidepressants can cause a group of symptoms called serotonin syndrome. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these depression medications together. Call your healthcare provider right away if you have any symptoms of serotonin syndrome (see "Linezolid"), as it can be very dangerous.
 
St. John's Wort
Taking Paxil with St. John's wort can cause a group of symptoms called serotonin syndrome. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these medications together. Call your healthcare provider right away if you have any symptoms of serotonin syndrome (see "Linezolid"), as it can be very dangerous.
 
Tamoxifen
Tamoxifen must be activated in the liver before it can work in the body. Paxil can inhibit this activation, perhaps making tamoxifen less effective. Check with your healthcare provider before taking tamoxifen with Paxil.
 
Theophylline
Paxil may increase the level of theophylline in your blood, perhaps increasing your risk of side effects. Your healthcare provider may need to check the level of theophylline in your blood and lower your theophylline dose if necessary.
