What is Xet-20?
Xet works by increasing the natural substance serotonin in the brain to help maintain mental balance. The active ingredient paroxetine belongs to a class of medications called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). The tablets can be used to treat depression, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), social anxiety disorders and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). Some women may also use the medication to treat premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD).
How is Xet-20 used?
Xet should be taken as directed by a doctor, usually once per day. The tablets should be taken 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 patientís condition and their response to the therapy. Do not discontinue the treatment without consulting a doctor as abruptly stopping the medication may cause severe withdrawal symptoms.
Patients using Xet may encounter adverse effects such as:
- Weight gain
- Decreased appetite
Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or encounter more severe side effects such as:
- Irregular heartbeat
- Easy bleeding or bruising
- Decreased sex drive or performance
- Blurred vision
Immediately proceed to your nearest emergency department if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms usually associated with such a reaction include difficulty breathing or swallowing, chest tightness, swelling, skin rashes, and hives.
