    Antidepressants Linked to First-Time Seizures

    "A new study ties antidepressants to a higher risk for first-time seizures in people being treated for depression.Older antidepressants called tricyclics were the only type not linked to the raised risk, say researchers from the University of Basel in Switzerland.


    The kinds connected to the worse odds of having a first seizure were:
    • SSRIs, or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors
    • SNRIs, or serotonin—norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors
    • Other antidepressants, including bupropion, mirtazapine, reboxetine, and trazodone"
    Read the article above for more information on what may vary possible risk and how the study was conducted.
