Panex Cr 12.5 MG Description

Panex Cr Tablet contains the active ingredient paroxetine. It belongs to the class of antidepressants used in the treatment of depression and anxiety-related disorders. Panex Cr is commonly prescribe

d for conditions such as major depressive disorders, obsessive compulsive disorders (OCD), panic disorders, agoraphobia, social and generalised anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). These conditions are associated with a decrease in the levels of serotonin in the brain, which inherently stabilises the mood, sleep, and eating pattern of a person. Panex Cr Tab may be prescribed in progressively increasing doses, and so, any resumption or abrupt discontinuation of Panex Cr Tablet should be informed to the treating doctor as it could increase the severity of the underlying condition. Paroxetine is a delayed action medicine and may take a few days before showing improvement in your condition. Before starting Panex Cr, the doctor should be informed of all the ongoing medications to avoid drug interaction. The doctor should also be informed about any current and future pregnancy status, breastfeeding, epileptic condition (fits or seizures), diabetes mellitus, glaucoma (abnormally increased pressure in the eye), difficulty passing urine, liver, heart, or kidney conditions, and the precise age of the patient.
