Why do people consume Zoloft and paxil (paroxetine) apart from premature ejaculation? Are there any harmful effects if I taken it consistently for a long time?

In brief: For Depression

These drugs are commonly prescribed for treating depression.
They can be taken at the prescribed dose for many months with no harmful effects. A doctor should monitor these drugs when taken for depression or other emotional disorders.

I agree with Dr Kibrick. I'm guessing that he' referring to the big improvement serotonin reuptake inhibitors were over tricyclic antidepressants because they arent anticholingeric,dont create respiratory depression and arent cardiotoxic. That made them much safer in overdose. My comments have to do with longer term administration
