How should I store Paxil?

Store Paxil (paroxetine) in the container it came in, tightly closed, at room temperature (between 59 degrees and 86 degrees Fahrenheit). Keep it away from direct light and moisture -- don't store it in a steamy bathroom. Make sure it's stored out of children's sight and reach. Don't share your medicine with anyone. If you have expired or excess Paxil, ask your doctor about the best way to discard it.
