1 doctor weighed in:

Fasting blood test. HDL/LDL good. Triglycerides high at 290. Can Paxil (paroxetine) or Xanax increase this reading? Cause for worry?

In brief: Not likely

But alcohol taken up to 3-5 days prior to triglyceride test can increase the result, At age 31, i would not worry.
Do exercise, loose a few pounds, abstain from alcohol 3-5 days before test and repeat it.
