Paroxetine 20mg Film-coated Tablets

Paroxetine belongs to a group of medicines called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), which are antidepressants.

Everyone has a substance called serotonin in their brain. People who are depressed or anxious have lower levels of serotonin than others. It is not fully understood how Paroxetine and other SSRIs work but they may help by increasing the level of serotonin in the brain. Treating depression or anxiety

disorders properly is important to help you get better.

Paroxetine is a treatment for adults with depression and/or anxiety disorders. The anxiety disorders that Paroxetine is used to treat are:

  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (repetitive, obsessive thoughts with uncontrollable behaviour) OCD
  • Panic disorder (panic attacks, including those caused by agoraphobia, which is a fear of open spaces)
  • Social anxiety disorder (fear or avoidance of social situations);
  • Generalised anxiety disorder (generally feeling very anxious or nervous).
  • Post−traumatic stress disorder (anxiety caused by a traumatic event)
