Paxil is an antidepressant medication, manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline and used by millions of Americans to treat many psychiatric and personality disorders, including clinical depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, social anxiety disorder, and posttraumatic stress. Paxil was approved by the FDA in 1992, but by as early 1997, numerous medical studies began linking Paxil to a variety of serious and dangerous side effects.
Serious side effects that may be caused by Paxil include:
- A variety of severe congenital birth defects in children of Paxil users
- Increased suicidal tendencies, especially in users under eighteen years of age
- Withdrawal and Dependency
- Other psychological effects, including increased anxiety and mood swings.
