Side Effects of Antidepressants
SSRIs are thought to work by blocking the reabsorption of serotonin in the brain to help cells send and receive chemical messages which boots your mood. Women who take these drugs while pregnant may be at higher risk of birthing babies with serious life threatening birth defects. The FDA released a safety announcement update in 2011 informing the public that pregnant women's newborns have an increased risk of rare heart and lung conditions from the mother's use of SSRIs. The FDA has also reported the possible increased risk of suicidal thoughts and behavior from the use of antidepressants. Other side effects and possible patient outcomes include:
- Dry mouth
- Increased Sweating
- Weight gain
