In brief: Yes bit unlikely

An overdose with antidepressants like paroxetine alone is usually not fatal.
However, mixed with alcohol or other sedating drugs things can get bad in a hurry and you can die. Also if it is a child or an elderly person or someone who is medically ill and you take a large amount of paroxetine then death is a possible outcome. Keep all meds in a safe place & take only as directed by your dr.
