Paxil Drug: Special Warnings 

Paxil Drug: Special Warnings  

Back Image - paxil drugThe Paxil drug should be used cautiously by people with a history of manic disorders and those with high pressure in their eyes (glaucoma).  If you have a history of seizures, make sure your doctor knows about it.  The Paxil drug should be used with caution in these situations.  If you develop seizures once the therapy has begun, the Paxil drug should be discontinued immediately. 

If you have a disease or condition that affects your metabolism or blood circulation, make sure your doctor is aware of it.  Always use the Paxil drug cautiously in these situations. 

The Paxil drug may impair your judgment, thinking or motor skills. Do not drive, operate dangerous machinery, or participate in any hazardous activity that requires full mental alertness, until you are sure the medication is not affecting you in this way. 

It is best to avoid an abrupt discontinuation of the Paxil drug.  It can lead to symptoms such as dizziness, abnormal dreams and tingling sensations.  To prevent such problems,  your doctor will reduce your dose gradually.
