Description

Antidepressant medications are drugs used to treat individuals with mild to severe depression and are some of the most commonly prescribed medicines. These drugs can also be used for the treatment of anxiety, eating disorders, and pain. Antidepressant medications aim to correct brain chemicals, also known as neurotransmitters, that are thought to be responsible for mood and behavior changes.

This change can cause side effects, as with all medicines. Side effects are not the same for every individual, and a specific antidepressant does not cause the same side effects in everyone. The way an individual responds to taking an antidepressant can be affected by many factors, including genetic makeup or current health conditions.

A wide variety of adverse side effects can often be caused by antidepressants, including: 

  • nausea
  • dizziness
  • increased appetite and weight gain
  • agitation
  • loss of sexual desire and other sexual problems
  • irritability
  • fatigue and drowsiness
  • anxiety
  • insomnia
  • blurred vision
  • dry mouth
  • constipation
