Paxil® has been linked with suicide and violence in children and teenagers. Paxil® is most commonly used to treat depression but is also prescribed to treat anxiety, panic, obsessive compulsive disorder, and post traumatic stress disorder.
It is estimated that over 17 million people worldwide have been treated with Paxil®.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently issued a warning for Paxil®, stating that the drug may cause suicide and violence in children and teenagers. This comes after Britain's Department of Health released evidence provided by the drug company showing there is an increase in the rate of self harm and potentially suicidal behavior in those under 18 taking Paxil®.

The FDA is strengthening its warning for the antidepressant Paxil® because it may be associated with birth defects, citing a new study that found increased risk of fetuses developing heart defects.
The FDA requested that GlaxoSmithKline reclassify Paxil® as a "Category D" drug for pregnant women. Two studies of pregnant women taking Paxil® during their first trimester have shown their babies have heart defects one and a half to two times a greater rate than the norm.
Paxil® is also linked with difficult withdrawal side-effects. Often these withdrawal effects are experienced just hours after one missed dose. Paxil® withdrawal symptoms include but are not limited to anxiety, dizziness, fatigue, headache, migraines, continuous indigestion, neck and back pain, hallucinations, illusions, insomnia, nausea, restlessness, hyper-sensitivity of the nervous system to light, sound, tremors, tinnitus and a vertiginous-like experience, depressive thoughts, suicidal thoughts, homicidal thoughts, extreme anger, severe agitation, extreme irritability, ringing in ears, throbbing in head, vomiting, paranoia, aggressive behavior, rollercoaster emotions, severe malaise, general dysphoria, derealization, and panic attacks.
