Generic Name: Penon
What is Penon?
The recommended initial dose of PAXIL CR is 12. Increases may be made if indicated. At least 14 days should elapse between discontinuation of an MAOI intended to treat psychiatric disorders and initiation of therapy with PAXIL CR.
Use of PAXIL CR With Other MAOIs, Such as Linezolid or Methylene Blue: Do not start PAXIL CR in a patient who is being treated with linezolid or intravenous methylene blue because there is increased risk of serotonin syndrome. In some cases, a patient already receiving therapy with PAXIL CR may require urgent treatment with linezolid or intravenous methylene blue.
If acceptable alternatives to linezolid or intravenous methylene blue treatment are not available and the potential benefits of linezolid or intravenous methylene blue treatment are judged to outweigh the risks of serotonin syndrome in a particular patient, PAXIL CR should be stopped promptly, and linezolid or intravenous methylene blue can be administered.
The patient should be monitored for symptoms of serotonin syndrome for 2 weeks or until 24 hours after the last dose of linezolid or intravenous methylene blue, whichever comes first. Therapy with PAXIL CR may be resumed 24 hours after the last dose of linezolid or intravenous methylene blue see WARNINGS. The clinician should, nevertheless, be aware of the possibility of emergent symptoms of serotonin syndrome with such use see WARNINGS.

How should I take Penon?
No significant changes in vital signs systolic and diastolic blood pressure, pulse, and temperature were observed in patients treated with PAXIL CR, or immediate-release paroxetine hydrochloride, in controlled clinical trials.
In an analysis of ECGs obtained in 682 patients treated with immediate-release paroxetine and 415 patients treated with placebo in controlled clinical trials, no clinically significant changes were seen in the ECGs of either group. In a pool of 2 placebo-controlled clinical trials, patients treated with PAXIL CR or placebo exhibited abnormal values on liver function tests at comparable rates.
In particular, the controlled-release paroxetine-versus-placebo comparisons for alkaline phosphatase, SGOT, SGPT, and bilirubin revealed no differences in the percentage of patients with marked abnormalities. In a study of elderly patients with major depressive disorder, 3 of 104 patients treated with PAXIL CR and none of 109 placebo patients experienced liver transaminase elevations of potential clinical concern.
Also, in the pool of 3 studies of patients with panic disorder, 4 of 444 patients treated with PAXIL CR and none of 445 placebo patients experienced liver transaminase elevations of potential clinical concern.
What should I avoid while taking Penon?
Withdrawing from the drug was done slowly, with a gradual reduction over a six week period. Treatment was accompanied by talk therapy. The withdrawal from the drug itself was difficult, as it led to the emergence of anxiety and panic attacks and a new case of mild depression. Never have I been so ill or wanted to die. Along with psychotherapy, I started taking prozac, with no effect after 2 months.

Prepare a journal to write through the experience. Abrupt discontinuation of the drug may result in Paxil withdrawal symptoms like anxiety, sleep changes, headaches and dizziness and can last for months. A slow and steady withdrawal under a doctor's supervision can go far in reducing these unpleasant Paxil side effects.
Think of your doctor as a partner in the process and follow his directions precisely to make the transition to a medication-free lifestyle as smooth as possible. To start getting off Paxil, look at your current dosage.
