Yes, paroxetine is an antidepressant and belongs to the drug class of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors ( (SSRIs). It is used to treat depression among other conditions, the dosage for depression to start the medication is 20mg. given once a day, and it has to be prescribed by a DR.
olanzapine is an antipsychotic used to treat the symptoms of psychotic conditions such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
As I mentioned before , do see a Dr. if you have not already and follow his / her instructions, as far as I can tell you Paroxetine seems to be an appropriate medication for your father in law.
