Antidepressant drugs have become so common that it’s easy to forget that they are potent medications that can have serious and disturbing side effects.
About 13% of Americans over age 12 take them regularly. That’s a 65% increase since 1999.
These medications include Prozac (fluoxetine), Zoloft (sertraline), Celexa (citalopram), and Lexapro (escitalpram). A major review from Canada’s McMaster University found that they may be more dangerous than you think.
