Frequently asked questions about Paroxetine

Q. After how many days of taking Pexpen will I start feeling better?
You may start to see an improvement in your symptoms after 1-2 weeks of starting the treatment. In case you do not see any improvement, do not stop the medicine and consult your doctor. It may take around 4-6 weeks to see the full benefits of the medicine.
Q. I feel that my symptoms have worsened after having started taking Pexpen. Can I stop it on my own or do I need to consult the doctor?
No, do not stop taking Pexpen abruptly, without consulting your doctor. This is a common problem with Pexpen that initially you may feel that your symptoms have worsened but the benefits start appearing after 1-2 weeks. If the worsening does not improve even after 1-2 weeks, you must consult your doctor.
Q. Can Pexpen affect my sex life?
Yes, Pexpen use may affect your sex life. It can cause decreased sexual desire and inability to reach orgasm in both men and women. Additionally, men may even experience abnormal erection and ejaculation.
Q. What is the effect of Pexpen on children?
Pexpen should not be used in children under 18 years of age. The reason being, patients under 18 have an increased risk of experiencing side effects such as suicidal thoughts, aggression, oppositional behavior and anger when they take Pexpen. If your doctor has prescribed Pexpen for your child and you are worried about these side effects, discuss it with your doctor.
Q. I have been taking tamoxifen for breast cancer. Can I take Pexpen with it?
No, you should not take Pexpen if you are receiving tamoxifen. Tamoxifen often causes hot flashes (episodes of feeling extremely hot), which can be treated with Pexpen. But Pexpen may reduce the effectiveness of tamoxifen and can lead to recurrence of breast cancer.
Q. Do I need to be careful while taking Pexpen if I am a diabetic?
Yes, you need to be careful while taking this medicine if you are a diabetic. Pexpen may alter your blood sugar levels and your dose of insulin or antidiabetic medicines may need adjustment. Talk to your doctor regarding this and keep a regular check on your blood sugar levels.
