How does Paxil work?
According to SmithKlineGlaxo, the manufacturer of Paxil, when a person suffers from depression or anxiety disorders, it typically indicates a problem with the serontonin balance and its effect on cell-to-cell communication-too much serotonin is reabsorbed by the first nerve cell, so the next cell does not have enough. To paraphrase, it's similar to a conversation where one person does all the talking and the other person never gets to talk, leading to a communication imbalance.
Paxil blocks serotonin from being reabsorbed back into the sender nerve cell, which increases the amount of serontonin available to be absorbed by the receiver cell and can help the cell-to-cell message transmission and communication return to normal.
