In brief: Few.

Memory loss and confusion are short term problems and should not be a barrier to a treat severe depression.
Certainly there are other side-effects but uncommon. It is much more palatable then when i did psychiatry in medical school and a resident. Electricity is used, while Insulin is considered passe.
