What are the pills you can buy as Generic Paxil?
Paxil is a brand registered for the most potent serotonin reuptake inhibitor antidepressant used for major depression and other mental disorders. It was developed in the early 1970’s and patented in 1973 in the UK with the following approval in the U.S. in 1977. The active substance of the medication which renders the effect is called Paroxetine. Currently, as the patent of the medication developer expired, the same substance is manufactured and sold by other pharmaceutical companies all around the world. These medications are collectively called generics of Paxil or generics of Paroxetine. Each medication has its own registered trade name but these terms are used for convenience so that people would be able to find the medicine they need without knowing its trade name but only the name of the active agent. Some of the names of the medications that can be offered to you when you look for a way to buy Generic Paxil are Pexep, Aropax, Pexeva, Seroxat, and others. In some countries only a few generics are available and the other generics are sold in other regions only. It depends whether their manufacturers choose to enter a certain market or not and not because some of these medicines are inferior. Worth noting that though there is no difference in the quality of generics sold in the U.S., the UK and the generics marketed in the developing countries, the costs of treatment greatly vary. Namely due to this reason, more and more people opt for online pharmacies situated abroad to get the medications they need from.
Why is Generic Paxil so much cheaper than the branded medicine?
First of all, the manufacturers of generics didn’t spend money on the research to invent the medication. Secondly, they do not promote their medications. Thirdly, the cheapest generics come from the developing countries where the production of pills costs several times less money than in the developed countries.
All of these factors allow generic drug makers to sell their medications cheaper than the branded medicines. However, that’s not all. The large pharmaceutical companies commonly intentionally price their medications several times more money than they actually cost just to create an illusion that these medications are superior to the other ones available on the market. And this strategy works quite well especially accompanied by kickbacks to doctors who convince their patients that a particular branded medication is what they need. Therefore, if your health care provider insists that you should buy Paxil, most likely he or she has a vested interest.
When should you use this antidepressant?
The medications based on this active substance are widely used for a variety of mental disorders and conditions. The indications for the preparation use include major depression, social phobia, panic attacks, recurring nightmares, obsessive-compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety, posttraumatic stress disorder, and others at a doctor’s discretion.
If you are diagnosed with any of the above-mentioned conditions and your therapist prescribed you the therapy with Paxil, you can without any doubts opt to buy Generic Paroxetine instead.
In case you have one of these diagnoses but your therapist didn’t recommend you this medication, you should clarify why it is unsuitable for you and if there is a valid reason, you should use the medications prescribed by your doctor or their generics instead. In the following section you can find contraindications for Paroxetine use.

The preparation is also not advised to be combined with nortriptyline, imipramine, desipramine, trazodone, and bupropion.
Paroxetine and mirtazapine, lithium, and tryptophan mutually enhance the effects of each other. They are used along only in severe, hard-to-treat depression.
The medication contributes to the elevated concentration (and intensified adverse effects) of tricyclic antidepressants, anticonvulsants, barbiturates, indirect anticoagulants, antipsychotics, antiarrhythmic drugs, and Metoprolol.
The risk of clotting disorder occurs in the concurrent use of the preparation with atypical neuroleptics, phenothiazine antipsychotics, tricyclic antidepressants, NSAIDs, and aspirin.
Any substances that influence serotonin level when used with Paroxetine enhance the risk of serotonergic effect.
Sodium Valproate slows down the metabolism of the antidepressant and elevates its concentration in the blood plasma.
The combination with neuroleptics elevates the risk of extrapyramidal symptoms and malignant neuroleptic syndrome.
These are the major prohibited combinations. For more undesirable or dangerous drug interactions please refer to the official instruction or the encyclopedia of medicines.
