Charleston, IL Paxil Side Effects Lawyers

Millions Recovered for Clients across Central & Southern Illinois

Paxil (paroxetine hydrochloride) 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 post-traumatic stress disorder. Paxil was approved by the FDA in 1992, but by 1997, medical studies began linking Paxil to a variety of serious and dangerous side effects.

If you took Paxil while pregnant and your child was born with birth defects, or if you personally experienced side effects caused by this antidepressant, The Tapella & Eberspacher Law Firm can investigate the matter and offer experienced insight regarding your right to compensation. We believe in holding drug companies accountable for releasing medications that cause harm to unsuspecting patients, and we fight for fair compensation in every case we handle.
