Do you ever find yourself asking yourself these questions?
- “My antidepressant is making my sleep worse.”
- “I get so anxious when on my antidepressants.”
- “I keep gaining more and more weight.”
- “I’m not feeling as down, but I still can’t focus on my work at all.”
- “I keep on having digestive issues while on my medication.”
Due to these side effects, have you ever thought about stopping use of your antidepressants?
In order to help alleviate symptoms of depression, antidepressants balance your brain chemistry. Everyone is different, so some people might experience side effects while taking antidepressants, while others might not. These side effects occur due to a number of variables, such as current health conditions and/or genes. Blurry vision, anxiety or irritability, and weight gain are among the most common side effects experienced by antidepressant users. Be especially sure to tell your physician if you are experiencing side effects. Side effects to antidepressants don’t have to be your normal. If you are dealing with the side effects of your antidepressants, call the Institute for Advanced Medical Research at 770-817-9200.
