It is also heavily advertised for panic attacks and some of his patients experienced their first pa's when starting this drug. Hope this helps- judy
> Hi Judi. I understand the lawsuit, but was just wondering why just Paxil, since there are so many drugs with the same withdrawal symptoms. Perhaps Paxil is just the first, and depending on the outcome, effexor and other drugs suits are waiting right behind. I know that Paxil has been out longer, so maybe that's why it's the first to be sued.

Of the SSRIs, Paxil is the most likely to produce intense withdrawal symptoms, probably because of its having the shortest half-life.

Shelli, where did you get a copy of the lawsuit?
