Why You Shouldn't Stop Taking Your Antidepressants

Antidepressants are supposed to make people feel better by alleviating the usual symptoms of depression. However, some people experience side effects like weight gain, anxiety, irritability, nausea, fatigue, insomnia, and loss of sexual desire. After having tried several different types of antidepressants, some people still are not able to find an antidepressant that works for them. When people start to take a new antidepressant that doesn’t seem to be working, their physician will often increase their dosage, which effectively leads to new side effects. It is important though to remember that just because your first couple of medications causes side effects doesn’t mean that all antidepressants will.


You don’t have to put up with the negative side effects of your antidepressants. If you are not satisfied with the medication that you’re taking, then maybe it is time to consider taking a medication that works for you. We hope to find better treatment options for depression through medical research and clinical trials.


Why should you engage in clinical trials?



No matter if you see a great amount of change or little to no change, engaging in the clinical trial will help you with trying to solve your symptoms of depression. The Institute for Advanced Medical Research offers no cost aftercare treatment to help aid the process of discovering which antidepressant option best suits you.
