PAROXETINE IS ONE OF THE BEST TREATMENT OF ANXIETY.
Paroxetine (Trade name: Seroxat, Casbol, Frosinor, Motivan), is a drug whose discovery dates back to the 90s, and was marketed with great success in 1991.
The efficacy and safety of this drug is widely proven as it has been used in adults for more than 30 years.
Mechanism of action and adverse effects:
Paroxetine is an antidepressant agent, which acts by selectively facilitating serotonin neurotransmission. Its main metabolites are products of its oxidation and methylation that are rapidly eliminated, so it is not likely that they contribute to the therapeutic action given their virtual absence of pharmacological activity. Adverse reactions are infrequent and in general it is a well tolerated drug.
A clinical overview of Paroxetine:
Its introduction into psychiatry represented a significant advance in the treatment of depression, becoming part of the group of modern SSRIs, which are already At that time they promised to be more effective but with fewer adverse effects than conventional tricyclic antidepressants.
From an eminently clinical perspective, we continue to understand that despite the enormous supply of new antidepressants that compete with it, paroxetine continues to be the main antidepressant to beat. This is due to its great effectiveness on anxiety and obsessions, in a context of proven safety, high efficacy, good tolerance and very low cost.
