To make sure Paxil is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have:

heart disease, high blood pressure, history of stroke;
liver or kidney disease;
a bleeding or blood clotting disorder;
seizures or epilepsy;
bipolar disorder (manic depression), or a history of drug abuse or suicidal thoughts;
narrow-angle glaucoma; or
low levels of sodium in your blood.
