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:
- Blurred vision
- 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.
