Like me, many of you may also take medications for depression; also, like me, you may be dealing with some antidepressant side effects. While I’m thankful for the improvements antidepressants make in my ability to cope with depression, I am sometimes frustrated by the side effects of the antidepressants. Some of you probably feel the same way. I also realize that many of you may have opted not to take antidepressants because of the side effects they can cause. Today I’d like to talk about how we can take the psychiatric medications that can help us while learning how to manage antidepressant side effects.
