Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Incidence of adverse events in Japanese subjects treated with paroxetine tablet based on prescribing information under the conditions of general clinical practice

  • Efficacy evaluation based on overall improvement [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The investigator compared the general condition over 1 week before each clinical visit with that over 1 week before the start of treatment with PAXIL.

  • Efficacy evaluation based on severity by symptoms [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    At every clinical visit, the investigator rated each of the specified symptoms including depressed mood, loss of interests/concerns, anxiety, lack of motivation, physical symptoms, and sleep disorders.

  • Efficacy evaluation based on Beck Depression Inventory- Second Edition (BDI-II) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The investigator asked each subject to fill out the self-administered form of BDI-II at every clinical visit (recommended clinical visit schedule: 1, 2, 4, 8, and 12 weeks after the start of treatment).
