        “Among the side effects of antidepressants are sexual dysfunction (which affects 70–80% of patients on SSRIs), long-term weight gain, insomnia, nausea, and diarrhea,” writes Irving Kirsch, PhD from Harvard Medical School.

        “Approximately 20% of people attempted to quit taking antidepressants show withdrawal symptoms.

        “Antidepressants have been linked to increases in suicidal ideation among children and young adults.

        “Older adults have increased risks of stroke and death from all causes.

        “Pregnant women using antidepressants are at increased risk of miscarriage, and if they don’t miscarry, their offspring are more likely to be born with autism, birth malformations, persistent pulmonary hypertension, and newborn behavioral syndrome.

        “Furthermore, some of these risks have been linked to antidepressant use during the first trimester of pregnancy, when women may not be aware that they are pregnant.

        “Perhaps the most surprising health consequence of antidepressant use is one that affects people of all ages.

        “Antidepressants increase the risk of relapse after one has recovered.

        “People are more likely to become depressed again after treatment by antidepressants than after treatment by other means – including placebo treatment.

        “Furthermore, the degree to which the risk of relapse increases depends on the degree to which the particular antidepressant used changes neurotransmission in the brain.

        “Given these health risks, antidepressants should not be used as a first-line treatment for depression.”
