Add Brain Hemorrhages to SSRI Antidepressant Side Effects
By John Curran
Many selective serotonin uptake inhibitors (SSRIs) work as antidepressants but can cause dangerous conditions like Prozac birth defect side effects. Like many psychoactive drugs, they can also prompt manic conditions and even suicidal thoughts, the opposite of what was intended. A recently released study shows data indicating that there are other Celexa side effects that could cause drastic damage.
Scientists presenting their research in Neurology reported that patients are half again as likely to develop Celexa brain hemorrhage side effects as compared to those taking a placebo. There could be any number of reasons for this, but the likely issue is that many SSRI antidepressants thin the blood and prevent clotting, providing the perfect environment for internal bleeding.
The researchers noted that the risk for Celexa brain hemorrhage side effects is relatively low, at about one case in 10,000 over the course of their research. This would not seem like it would affect many Americans, except that 11 percent of those aged 14 or older are on antidepressants, or just over 26 million. That puts the potential number of cases for Prozac internal bleeding side effects and those of other antidepressants at more than 25,000.
In addition to Prozac birth defects, these conditions could lead to significant trauma and even death for members of thousands of families. It is yet another in a slew of Celexa side effects that people should consider when they go on one of the most popular types of drugs in the United States.
In addition to Prozac internal bleeding side effects, there are also reports of patients developing the dangerous skin condition Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, which can take years to treat, including the subsequent recovery.
