Paxil (paroxetine): Paxil (paroxetine) is generally best taken in the morning. At first these class of drugs (ssris) may cause you to become drowsy, but that is usually transient. The opposite may occur in some people where they develop insomnia later in therapy if taken too late in the day, hence the reason to take it in the am.
