Paroxetine is a prescription medication that is licensed to treat depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and several other conditions. The brand-name version of this medication is Paxil®; however, Paxil has come off patent and generic forms of paroxetine are available. The drug is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), which means it works by blocking the reuptake of a chemical (serotonin) in the brain. A few of the more common side effects seen with paroxetine include ejaculation problems, nausea, and insomnia.
