What is Xet-10?
Xet containing the active ingredient paroxetine is considered a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) type of medication. It works by increasing the natural substance serotonin in the brain to help maintain mental balance. The tablets can be used to treat depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorders, anxiety disorders and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Some women may also use the medication to treat premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD).
How is Xet-10 used?
Xet is usually taken orally once per day or as directed by a doctor. Take the tablets with a snack or meal along with a full glass of water to prevent an upset stomach. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage and length of treatment as it will depend on the condition being treated and the patientís response to the treatment. Do not discontinue the medication without consulting a doctor as abruptly stopping the therapy can cause severe withdrawal symptoms.
Patients using Xet may encounter unwanted side effects such as:
- Decreased appetite
- Weight gain
Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or encounter more severe side effects such as:
- Blurred vision
- Decreased sex drive or performance
- Easy bleeding or bruising
