Active ingredient: paroxetine

Data from a study of healthy volunteers who received a single dose with and without food shows that area under curve of concentration of the drug (AUC) increases slightly (6%) when administered with food, while the time that takes the drug in reaching its maximum concentration (Tmax) is reduced from 6.4 hours to 4.9 hours and the maximum concentration (Cmax) is increased by 29%.

By this reason, it is considered advisable to take paroxetine with food.
