Did you know that one of Paxil’s many side effects if depression? Has your teen been prescribed Paxil? Did you know that it has now been linked with suicide and violence in children and teenagers? The FDA issued a caution on Paxil in May of 2006 due to a study of 15,000 patients where 11 revealed suicidal attempts, all of which were taking Paxil for depression.
Of the 11 people, 8 were aged 18-30 and now an estimated 17 million people worldwide have been treated with Paxil. The FDA eventually issued a warning for Paxil in September of 2004 stating that the drug can cause suicidal and violent behavior in children and teenagers. The FDA now continues to investigate the suicidal risk associated with Paxil and other antidepressants.
If you or your teen has been affected by Paxil then Contact the Law Office of Reich and Binstock for an evaluation.
