Hello cathyd176bx. Paxil/Paroxetine is an antidepressant. It is used to treat anxiety disorders, depression, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)as well as OCD. (Obessive Compulsive Disorder) It can impair a persons reactions such as in driving a vehicle. It should help his anxiety, as well as his mood in general. He might feel some of the following, which are common side effects to taking Paxil. Sleepiness, Nausea, Dizzineess, as well as sweating. These usually always ease up the longer a person is on the drug. It will be close to a months time for the drug to work close to its full potential. Regards pledge
