Paroxetine hydrochloride (Paxil®), a part of a group of medications called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), is commonly used to treat several conditions of the brain. Specifically, paroxetine is approved to treat depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. This prescription medication works by allowing a certain brain chemical (serotonin) to stay in the brain for a longer period of time.
