What are the side effects?
Like any other medication, some people who take antidepressant medication experience some side effects. While they can vary depending on which medication is taken, common side effects can include nausea, headaches, anxiety, sweating, dizziness, agitation, weight gain, dry mouth and sexual difficulties (e.g. difficulty becoming/staying aroused).
Some of these side effects are short-lived, but there are still ways of minimising them. If you're prescribed medication, make sure you keep your doctor informed of any changes.
