In brief: Avoid in pregnancy

Paxil (paroxetine) has an fda rating of "d" (there is evidence of potential risk to the fetus).
Paxil (paroxetine) may cause heart defects or serious lung problems in a newborn if taken during pregnancy. Some babies may experience a "discontinuation syndrome" after birth. Take only the medications during pregnancy that a physician or psychiatrist directs you to take.
