The Trouble with Anti-Depressants


new study shows that taking antidepressants can lead to emotional “blunting.” This means that patients become less responsive to both positive and negative things in their lives.

The study found that 40-60% of people taking selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) drugs reported feeling emotionally dull or an inability to feel pleasure. They also reported having more trouble reaching orgasm during sex.

Researchers say that patients should be warned about this possible side effect before they are given SSRI to treat depression.
