Other Side Effects

Some of the more serious known side effects of antidepressants include liver problems and failure, convulsions, hallucinations, agitation, anxiety, psychosis, mania, and cardiac and lung birth defects.

These side effects, like the other serious side effects discussed in this website, should also be reported to the Federal Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”).

Because antidepressants can cause severe withdrawal reactions, do not stop the drug without consulting with a physician who is aware of this problem.

If you, or someone you know, have been the unfortunate victim of the kinds of side effects from antidepressants discussed on this site, please report it immediately to the Federal Food and Drug Administration. This is very important because this is one way pressure can be put on drug companies to fully disclose the adverse side effects of their antidepressants. You can report your side effects at FDA Medwatch.
