Paxil Warning Issued Due to Birth Defects
Paxil is a prescription drug that is used to treat various mood disorders such as depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). Paxil as an antidepressant drug is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). Paxil works by returning the balance of the neurotransmitter serotoninin that helps you get control of mood swings. The FDA has issued a Paxil Warning due to an increased risk of birth defects.
