How to get paroxetine (Paxil) online in Canada with Maple.

First, choose your symptoms

Select your symptoms within the Maple app so the doctor can evaluate your symptoms and condition. Enter as much information as possible so that the doctor can make a thorough assessment.

If you don’t have employer / insurer coverage, fees may apply since many of our services aren’t covered by provincial health plans. This is often because of our use of secure messaging and a national network of doctors and nurse practitioners.

Payment may be required, and will include the prescriptions for paroxetine (Paxil) if the doctor deems it necessary.

Next, you'll hear from the doctor

Once you’ve entered your symptoms, a doctor or nurse practitioner will review your case. If they’re able to help, your visit will start; if they can’t help, you’ll be notified before your consultation begins and you won’t be charged. You’re only charged if you speak with a Maple doctor.

Most often, you’ll speak to your doctor or nurse practitioner over text, though they may request audio or video chat if it’ll help with your diagnosis.

Get your medication

You'll get a prescription right on Maple, so you can send it to any pharmacy for pickup, or you can have it shipped with free delivery.

In some cases, a prescription won’t be recommended by the doctor. They will let you know if this is the case. Doctors may also not be able to prescribe some medications in certain provinces or regions.

Note: Maple is not a pharmaceutical manufacturer, nor are we an online pharmacy. This means you'll need to buy the medication from the pharmacy itself once you have your prescription.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is paroxetine (Paxil) and how does it work?

Paroxetine (Paxil) is an antidepressant belonging to the SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) group. It works by affecting specific chemical (serotonin) levels in your brain. This leads to an increase in energy levels, an improvement in mood and ability to sleep, while decreasing levels of fear, anxiety and preventing unwanted thoughts.

Paroxetine prescriptions have also been known to increase appetite in some cases.

What are the uses for paroxetine (Paxil)?

Paxil prescriptions are commonly used to treat people experiencing chronic depression, anxiety disorders, panic attacks or other emotional disorders.

Paroxetine is also sometimes used to treat panic disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

How do you use paroxetine (Paxil)?

Paroxetine prescriptions are given as tablets or capsules, to be taken orally with or without food. Taking food with paroxetine could reduce potential nausea.

Dosage strength and regularity of use is based on your medical condition and your doctor’s recommendation.

To reduce the risk of adverse effects, your doctor may start you on a low dosage and then slowly increase it over a period of time, until you find the level that works best for you.

Always follow your doctor’s instructions for controlling your dosage. Paxil must be taken regularly, over a long period of time to get the best results.

What are the side effects and risks of paroxetine (Paxil)?

If you’re considering a paroxetine prescription, you need to be aware of the possible side effects.
Common side effects include:

  • Dizziness
  • Skin rash
  • Agitation
  • Nausea
  • Drowsiness
  • Blurred vision
  • Dry mouth
  • Sweating or chills
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Weakness or fatigue

Paxil prescriptions have also been shown to increase suicidal thoughts and behaviours in some pediatric or young adult patients. Parents or caregivers of these at-risk groups should monitor patients closely, so that they can recognize these symptoms right away if they start to appear.

Who should not take paroxetine (Paxil)?

Before you request a Paxil prescription, talk to your doctor if you’ve ever experienced:

  • Bi-polar or manic-depressive disorder
  • Suicidal thoughts or tendencies (or have a family history of this)
  • Liver or kidney problems
  • Seizures
  • Ulcers or intestinal bleeding
  • Low sodium levels in your blood
  • Glaucoma (or have a family history of this)

You also shouldn’t take paroxetine if you’re taking pimozide or thioridazine, because it could cause serious side effects.

If you’ve been taking an MAO inhibitor (a different kind of antidepressant), don’t take Paxil within 14 days before/after the other medication, to avoid negative reactions.

If you have any questions about the medication, you can speak to a doctor on Maple by registering for an account.
