Abstract

The magnitude of the paroxetine-induced increase in LDL-C would lead to a minor increase in CHD risk in a minority of healthy male volunteers without associated CHD risk factors but might increase LDL-C sufficiently to warrant therapeutic intervention in patients with established CHD, based on the National Cholesterol Education Program guidelines.
