Can antidepressants after taking them for over a year cause head pressure.

Can antidepressants after taking them for over a year cause head pressure.

Headache: Unfortunately, just about anything can cause a headache. Depending on the antidepressant you were taking - this is more or less likely to occur.

Hope that helps! ...Read more
