Side effects of psychiatric medication

by | Oct 20, 2017 | Mental Health, News

As well as potential benefits, every psychiatric drug has the potential to cause unwanted side effects. These can occur after both short-term and long-term use.

Mild side effects might:

  • stop once your body has got used to the drug
  • be manageable by adjusting how you take the drug (such as taking it with food, or at a different time of day).

Severe side effects might:

  • mean that you need to stop taking the drug and seek medical help
