Hi doctor,

I was diagnosed with depression, OCD and anxiety. My current medications are Paroxetine hydrochloride hemihydrate and Clonazepam. I would like to know if Paroxetine hydrochloride formulation is the same as Paroxetine hydrochloride hemihydrate.

  • Paroxetine hydrochloride hemihydrate is a commonly used form of Paroxetine hydrochloride. It is a stable form.
  • Paroxetine anhydrous is another form of Paroxetine hydrochloride. So, you can use this hemihydrate form.
