Xet can be used to help treat depression, social anxiety disorders, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). The active ingredient paroxetine is considered a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) type of medication that can increase the amount of serotonin in the brain to maintain mental balance. Some women may also use the medication to treat premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD).
