Abstract

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors are associated with a variety of side effects, many of which are resolved during the first couple of weeks of treatment. Side effects that emerge or persist after 1 month of treatment include sexual dysfunction and weight gain. Although these adverse events are serious, they can be managed successfully if recognized early.
