Tom Cruise on Post Partum Depression:

Because Cruise's religion maintains that vitamins, exercise and behavioral changes can play a part in overcoming depression and many other illnesses, in May 2005 Cruise publicly criticized actress Brooke Shields for using the drug Paxil, an anti-depressant, which Shields claims helped her recover from depression after the birth of her daughter in 2003. Cruise also said, "Here is a woman, and I care about Brooke Shields because I think she is an incredibly talented woman, you look at and think, where has her career gone?" At the time, Shields was starring in a London revival of the musical "Chicago". Shields responded that Cruise's statements about anti-depressants were "irresponsible" and "dangerous." She said he should "stick to fighting aliens" (a reference to Cruise's starring role in War of the Worlds) and let mothers decide the best way to treat Post partum depression.

As an effective medicine, paxil would surely provide you immense relief if you are in the grip of panic disorder, depression or generalized anxiety disorder but it is altogether true that the usage of Paxil occasionally facilitates certain side-effects such as headache, low blood pressure, irregular heartbeat et al. These side-effects can yield serious results if not treated immediately hence take this medicine only on proper prescription.
