Were you looking for information about Paroxetine? Proxetine is a common misspelling of paroxetine.
Paroxetine hydrochloride (Paxil®) is a medication licensed to treat several conditions that affect the brain, such as depression, certain types of anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. This prescription medication is classified as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) and works by allowing a certain brain chemical (serotonin) to remain in the brain for a longer period of time. In order for paroxetine to work properly, you must take it as prescribed. The dosage of paroxetine your healthcare provider prescribes will vary, depending on several factors, such as your age, other medical conditions you may have, and other medications you may be taking.
