Paxil (paroxetine) and diarrhea: Diarrhea is a known side effect of paxil, (paroxetine) and can often happen when initially beginning this medication. Please call your physician about this today -- s/he may want to decrease your dose especially if you have just started it. If you've been taking Paxil (paroxetine) for some time, completely skipping a dose may lead to withdrawal symptoms.

Paxil (paroxetine): That could cause a negative reaction, check with your doctor for his or her advice before doing so, also your pharmacist can help. Best.
