Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of adverse events in Japanese subjects treated with paroxetine tablet based on prescribing information under the conditions of general clinical practice [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Efficacy evaluation based on Beck Depression Inventory - Second Edition (BDI-II) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The investigator asked the patient to fill out a set of self-administered BDI-II forms at each time of the patient's visits to the medical center (Patients were to make visits around 1, 2, 4, 8 and 12 weeks after starting PAXIL).

  • Efficacy evaluation based on overall improvement [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The investigator comprehensively assessed the general condition of the patient at each time of the patient's visits to the medical center and rated the condition on a seven-grade eight-category scale (7 grades of markedly improved, moderately improved, slightly improved, unchanged, slightly worsened, worsened and severely worsened; a category of unassessable).

  • Efficacy evaluation based on severities of specific symptoms [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The investigator rated the severities of depressed mood, anxiety, feeling irritated, hypobulia, physical symptoms and sleep disorder on a four-grade scale (none, mild, moderate and severe) based on the interview and the results of BDI-II at each time of the patient's visits to the medical center (patients were to make visits around 1, 2, 4, 8 and 12 weeks after starting PAXIL).
