Depends on med: Different medications have different side effects. Ssris are most known for weight gain, nausea, headache, and sexual side effects. Wellbutrin (bupropion) may increase anxiety and increase risk of seizures. Remeron is sedating and may increase appetite. Ask your doctor about side effects for your medication. All can increase suicidal thoughts in adolescents and young adults.
