Paxil danger is real.
Paxil causes serious side effects: Pregnant women taking Paxil have a greater chance of having babies with birth defects especially heart defects than women who have used other antidepressants or no antidepressants. Once touted as a wonder drug, patients now wonder why they were prescribed Paxil and why they were not warned about the dangerous Paxil side effects.

Paroxetine or paroxetine hydrochloride (sold under the trade names Paxil in the United States, Seroxat in the United Kingdom and China, Aropax in Australia and New Zealand, Deroxat in Switzerland) is an antidepressant of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) type. It was released onto the market in 1992 by the pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline and has since become one of the most prescribed antidepressants on the market. It is the second most prescribed anti-depressant in the UK.
In the United States, antidepressants are the third best-selling pharmaceutical drug after cholesterol and ulcer medication. About one in 20 adults are now taking an antidepressant. SSRIs, (Paxil, Zoloft, Prozac) have been among the most controversial drugs in the history of medicine. Bitter disputes about side effects have raged for more than a decade but have been far from the media eye until recently. Dangerous side effects often emerge only after drugs have been prescribed to millions of people for many years.
But in the case of SSRIs like the Paxil dangers, there are real signs that GlaxoSmithKline has downplayed known risks and that the FDA and doctors have not done their due diligence and prescribed them for conditions like shyness or embarrassment.
