Side Effects Of Antidepressants
Make sure to ask your doctor about the side-effects you may experience as a result of these medications. Some common side-effects of antidepressants are feeling sick, dry mouth, nausea, sleep difficulties, weight gain, excessive sweating, erectile dysfunction in men, and constipation or diarrhea.
As the body gets used to the medication, these side-effects should subside. If you find that the side-effects persist or get worse, consult your doctor.
MAOIs may cause a serious rise in blood pressure which can lead to symptoms such as a stiff neck, chest pain, abnormally fast heartbeat and severe headache. In case you experience such symptoms, contact your doctor immediately.
