Paxil is an SSRI.

It is often prescribed for OCD, so after you have taken it for a while it is supposed to quiet the obsessive thoughts.

However, taking SSRIs while drinking is counter-productive.

The drinking you have to stop - none of your other meds are going to work as prescribed while drinking.
