Contain the active ingredient : Paroxetine hydrochloride is a type of antidepressant medicine known as a selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitor (SSRI). It works by enhancing the activity of a neurotransmitter called serotonin in the brain.
Neurotransmitters are natural body chemicals that act as chemical messengers between the nerve cells. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter known to be involved in regulating emotions, mood and behavior, among other things. In depression and anxiety disorders there is a decreased amount of serotonin released from nerve cells in the brain.
Paroxetine works by stopping the serotonin that has been released from being reabsorbed back into the nerve cells in the brain. This helps to prolong its effects and over time this helps to lighten mood and relieve depression. Antidepressants like paroxetine have also been found to be effective in relieving symptoms of anxiety, such as panic and fear.
Paroxetine won't change your personality or make you feel instantly happy and relaxed. It works over time to correct the chemical changes in your brain that have made you become depressed or anxious, and gets you back to feeling like your old self.
