Paxil (paroxetine) can help: Gastritis can certainly be worsened by stress. Paxil (paroxetine) can help if your stress, depression, or anxiety is so severe that it is causing impairment. It is not uncommon to have stress and anxiety show up as physical signs and symptoms. Diet and exercise can help, too. Good luck!
