Secondary and side effects of particular Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) antidepressants - literature review

Ewa Krzewicka-Romaniuk, Dagna Siedlecka, Artur Romaniuk



Serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), along with serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) and norepinephrine dopamine reuptake inhibitors (NDRIs), are the first-line drugs in the treatment of depression. Pharmacotherapy of psychiatric disorders with SSRIs is widely practised. Although SSRIs are thought to be relatively safe group of drugs, it is worth to remember that particular SSRIs agents are related to  unique secondary and side effects. Knowledge about basic differences between each medication in this group is essential to choose suitable treatment for every patient.
