    Stress and anxiety needs to be addressed properly and immediately before it leads to a psychological disorder. Depression and anxiety attacks for example may have physical manifestations and sometimes these conditions may be beyond one's control but do always keep in mind that we need to control and attune our thoughts to neutralize these feelings without any medication needed.

    Anxiety treatments like SSRIs are known to have untowards side effects like Paxil for example. It worsens the anxiety and depression instead of alleviating it. Many have been affected with this drug in a negative way due to its side effects.

    If you or if you know somebody who took Paxil and struggled because of it, seek the advice of Paxil Lawyers.
