Patients Should Receive Warnings on Paxil Side Effects

Mar 10, 2008
Paxil is a prescription drug made to treat such conditions as depression, social anxiety disorder, and obsessive compulsive disorder. However, it is entirely possible that you or a loved one by using this product have already brought on one or more Paxil side effects without prior warning.

This is grounds for a lawsuit against its manufacturer, GlaxoSmithKline (Glaxo for short), which has a reputation for dishonesty with many people including some in the U.S. government. For example, when Governor Eliot Spitzer of New York served as attorney general, he brought a Paxil lawsuit for the withholding of information on several studies that had failed to prove the drug's effectiveness for adolescents and children. In fact, due to Paxil side effects that were known only after its approval in 1992, it has never been approved for anyone under 18 or pregnant women.

Paxil side effects to look for include withdrawal, anxiety attacks, homicidal/suicidal tendencies, aggressiveness, mood swings, and birth defects. You should note that these essentially worsen the conditions they were meant to treat. Notify your attorney on which of these you have experienced until now.

Also be aware that you should file your claim as soon as possible since your state's laws only give you a limited amount of time for this action. One benefit your attorney is likely to offer you is that you will be charged contingency fees, which are not up-front and only depend on your case's overall success. In selecting your attorney, contact at least several candidates with crucial experience specializing in the field in question and ask for an interview. The legal process tends to take many months, and to help bring it to closure in a timely manner, you should present as much relevant evidence as possible.

Statistically, Paxil lawsuits are very rare; you may be one of only about 5,000 people in the United States who have them. This means that you will likely face many challenges when it comes to finding the right lawyer. If you would like to be weaned off of Paxil, you may want to see your doctor and ask about any alternative treatments.

The lack of a black-box warning on Paxil's label is a violation of FDA requirements as well as your right to know the facts. Once you discover important Paxil side effects, you cannot afford to wait until they pose a threat to your life and future. Act today; you have much at stake.
