Prescribed Medications: Side Effects And Its Withdrawal Symptoms


Side effects of prescribed medications

People with depression or anxiety often get prescribed medications that have a tranquilizing effect on the brain.

  • Fatigue
  • Muscle spasms
  • Lack of sleep
  • Drowsiness
  • Confusion
  • Double vision
  • Rage
  • Loss of balance
  • Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Rash
  • Difficulty breathing
