It is possible to overdose on Paxil (paroxetine), although it is relatively rare. Taking more than the prescribed amount of Paxil can cause a range of symptoms, including dizziness, tremors, confusion, rapid heartbeat, nausea, vomiting, seizures, and coma. In severe cases, a Paxil overdose can be life-threatening.
If you or someone you know has taken an overdose of Paxil, it is important to seek immediate medical attention. Treatment may involve pumping the stomach or administering activated charcoal to absorb the medication, as well as monitoring and treating any symptoms that may arise. It is also important to seek professional help to address any underlying mental health concerns that may have led to the overdose.
