Paroxetine HCl - Overview

Paroxetine is a medication sometimes prescribed for people with different types of psychiatric conditions. People who might need a paroxetine medication prescription, including paroxetine 10 mg tablets and paroxetine 20 mg tablets, can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe paroxetine HCl medication when appropriate to do so.

What Is Paroxetine Used For?

Paroxetine prescription medication, marketed under the brand names Paxil and Brisdelle, is an orally administered psychotropic medication. Paroxetine is sometimes prescribed to people with major depressive disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic disorder, social and general anxiety disorder and posttraumatic stress disorder. Paroxetine, like citalopram (Celexa), fluoxetine (Prozac), fluvoxamine (Luvox), escitalopram (Lexapro) and sertraline (Zoloft), is a type of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRIs) medication. The mechanism of action by which paroxetine works is thought to be related to its ability to block the reuptake of the neurotransmitter serotonin (5-HT), allowing serotonin to exert its activity for a longer period of time. When considering effects on neurotransmitters, paroxetine medication is also somewhat selective for serotonin which minimizes potential side effects it would cause if it was affecting other types of neurotransmitters as well.

Paroxetine - Dosage and Cost

The starting dose of paroxetine is frequently paroxetine 20 mg daily although the actual prescription written depends on the judgement of the prescribing medical provider and the underlying health needs of the patient. Following oral administration, nearly all of the drug is absorbed and the mean elimination half-life of paroxetine is under 24 hours. Paroxetine is eliminated in both the feces and the urine. While branded paroxetine tablets are expensive, generic paroxetine is considered affordable, costing approximately 30 cents or less per paroxetine 20 mg tablet at many pharmacies in the United States. Anyone paying out of pocket should look for paroxetine medication coupons online or through other sources. Depending on the insurance coverage, some insurance plans may also cover costs associated with a paroxetine medication prescription. Paroxetine is generally available as paroxetine 10 mg tablets, paroxetine 20 mg tablets, paroxetine 30 mg tablets and paroxetine 40 mg tablets.

Can I Buy Paroxetine Online?

Paroxetine OTC is not available in the United States because paroxetine is a prescription medication. Because of this, one cannot just buy paroxetine online as the first step is getting a prescription from a licensed medical provider. People who might need a paroxetine medication prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe paroxetine HCl medication, including generic paroxetine 10 mg tablets and paroxetine 20 mg tablets, when appropriate to do so.

Paroxetine - Side Effects

Paroxetine can cause side effects and concerns about using the medication should be discussed with a qualified medication practitioner before use. Side effects that may result from paroxetine use include nausea, vomiting, dizziness, trouble sleeping and vomiting although the paroxetine prescription medication is tolerated well by many people. Paroxetine can increase the risk of mood disorders, bleeding problems and seizures. Paroxetine should not be used concomitantly with monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), linezolid, methylene blue or pimozide. Paroxetine and alcohol should not be used together. People with a known hypersensitivity to paroxetine or similar medications should not take paroxetine HCl tablets.

More Paroxetine Information

A small number of children, teenagers, and young adults (up to 24 years of age) who took antidepressants ('mood elevators') such as paroxetine during clinical studies became suicidal (thinking about harming or killing oneself or planning or trying to do so). Children, teenagers, and young adults who take antidepressants to treat depression or other mental illnesses may be more likely to become suicidal than children, teenagers, and young adults who do not take antidepressants to treat these conditions. However, there are also risks when depression is not treated in children and teenagers. Talk to your child's doctor about these risks and whether your child should take an antidepressant, Children younger than 18 years of age should not normally take paroxetine, but in some cases, a doctor may decide that paroxetine is the best medication to treat a child's condition.

Be sure that your family or caregiver knows which symptoms may be serious so they can call the doctor if you are unable to seek treatment on your own.

Be sure to keep all appointments for office visits with your doctor. No matter what your age, before you take an antidepressant, you, your parent, or your caregiver should talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of treating your condition with an antidepressant or with other treatments.
