SSRIs work by boosting the neurotransmitters that control emotion, in part by releasing serotonin.

According to WebMD, the following SSRIs are approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of depression, anxiety, and other similar issues:

  • Citalopram (Celexa)
  • Escitalopram (Lexapro)
  • Fluoxetine (Prozac)
  • Fluvoxamine (Luvox, Luvox CR)
  • Paroxetine (Paxil, Paxil CR)
  • Sertraline (Zoloft)

If you or someone you love has been taking any of these drugs and been seriously injured, call Burg Simpson’s office in Wyoming at 307-527-7891 and speak to a trial attorney right away.

Most people can take SSRIs for years and not suffer any ill effects, but medical treatments always carry at least some risk. Potential side effects of these particular drugs include:

  • Insomnia
  • Headaches
  • Rash
  • Blurred vision
  • Drowsiness
  • Dry mouth
  • Agitation or nervousness
  • Feeling dizzy
  • Pain in the joints or muscles
  • Upset stomach, nausea, or diarrhea
  • Reduced sexual desire
  • Problems with erection or ejaculation

SSRIs can also interact badly with other medications and while some people do suffer side effects, others may not. If you have shown signs of serious side effects, get the legal help you need by calling Burg Simpson Wyoming at 307-527-7891.
