Paroxetine

Posted , 5 users are following.

I am a bit confused with sone of the posts. I have taken Seroxat (Paroxetine) for years. I have noticed some people referring to a drug called Paxil, saying its Paroxetine. I have never known it as Paxil. Can someone please explain this. Thank you.

    It's the same drug. I think paroxetine is the generic name. Did you have bad side effects at first?
