When Does Paxil Start Working?
Paxil® (paroxetine hydrochloride) is a prescription medicine licensed to treat various conditions within the brain, such as depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder. It comes in tablet and liquid form and is typically taken once a day.
Many people may wonder, "When does Paxil start working?" It usually takes several weeks (perhaps even more than a month) before you can feel the beneficial effects of Paxil. Try not to be discouraged if the medication does not work right away for you.
It is generally recommended to take Paxil in the morning, in order to help prevent insomnia. If it makes you drowsy, however, try taking it before bedtime. It is important to take Paxil at the same time each day to maintain an even level of medicine in your blood.
