A variety of anti-depressant drugs called Serotonin Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors are heavily prescribed in the United States (for complete list scroll to the bottom of this page). Not only do these drugs severely alter brain chemistry, but they also have serious side effects: most notably, they cause grievous birth defects. Doctors prescribe these drugs for a variety of psychological issues, including anxiety, personality disorder, and depression. Some doctors prescribe these drugs for off-label uses, such as irratable bowel syndrome, Lichen simplex chronicus, and even premature ejaculation disorders. Some SNRIs are even presribed for ADHD.
SNRIs are similar to SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors), but are slightly different in their chemical make-up. In any case, the side effects of these two variants of antidepressants are virtually the same.
Many studies have indicated that SNRIs are actually not as effective at treating psychological disorders as pharmaceutical companies claim. In fact, studies have indicated that the difference between an SSRI and a placebo is often negligible in terms of efficacy.
While not all SNRIs are the same, almost all of them are known to cause similar side effects, including, but not limited to:
However, the two most dangerous side effects of SNRIs are birth defects and suicide. The most dangerous birth defect that occurs as a result of SNRI use is Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension, which is a rare lung disease that causes life-long issues with breathing. Studies have indicated that SNRIs increase the risk of a newborn developing this disorder sixfold. Infants born with Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension require extensive and expensive medical care.
Suicide is also a possible side effect of SNRIs. Even though SSRIs are supposed to treat psychologial disorders, they at times exacerbate them, leading the the worst of all possible consequences- death.
