Looking for information on the possible side effects from taking Paxil?
You’ve come to the right place!
Listed below are over 450 different side effects of Paxil (paroxetine) that showed up during the decade of testing…
in a Herculean effort to find two studies (only two!) that would show Paxil works better than a placebo to mask the symptoms of depression.
By employing a ‘scientific’ methodology that would be laughed out of any junior high school science class, researchers were finally able to produce those two studies.
The ten long years of struggle and many drug trial failures had paid off!
Leaving a path of pain and suffering in it’s wake, Paxil was finally ‘proven’ to be safe and effective in the treatment of depression.
And now you get to live with the results. How many of these hundreds of side effects do you have?
As you read over this huge list, keep in mind these are real people who were (and are) really suffering. It’s so easy to ‘gloss-over’ these hundreds and hundreds of Paxil side effects, mostly because there are just so many of them.
- But how many people can’t sleep tonight because of Paxil?
- How many can’t get out of bed because of the crushingly painful migraine headaches?
- How many people no longer feel like a human being because they’re taking Paxil?
- How many good honest people think they’re going crazy – right now?
- How many are sick with the ‘Paxil flu’?
What’s your story? How much weight have you gained? Are you feeling the pain of Paxil?
Paxil can affect many different body parts and systems. If you have not yet started taking Paxil, you may wish to reconsider after reading this information.
Listed below are the most frequent side effects as reported by the GSK.
Frequencies range from 1% to 36.3%. These figures are somewhat misleading, since one in five of those test subjects – a full 20% – had to drop out of the drug trials because the Paxil side effects were simply too harsh to tolerate.
If these ‘quitters’ (as the researchers called them) were factored in, the true percentage of people suffering from side effects would increase substantially.
To illustrate what I mean,consider the following example: Recent unbiased studies suggest as many as half the people taking Paxil have sexual problems of one kind or another.
Compare this percentage with the ‘official’ results from GSK testing – which indicated about 10% of the clinical trial patients had sexual problems.
What does this say? In real life - your life - the Paxil side effects occur much more frequently than previously reported. In this case, five timesmore frequently!

This next list is for the minor (less frequent – not less debilitating) side effects of Paxil. They also were reported during the many years of testing.
Paxil side effects listed in bold occurred in more than 1% of the patients. The remaining side effects of Paxil occurred in less than 1% of the patients who tested Paxil back in the 1980′s.

In addition to reading these Paxil side effects, it’s also important to understand the underlying causes that would lead you to such a painful place.
I almost feel guilty because my life has become so enjoyable and so easy. Especially since I remember how miserable I used to be.
Basically it comes down to making one slight shift in what you do everyday, and you can watch in amazement as your life slowly begins to start working out in almost every way.
It’s such an important change that I’ve written a complete e-book about it. And I’d like to give you a copy for free. All you have to do is write your first name and primary email address into the space below, and you’ll be receiving a link to download the e-book right away.
