All Antidepressants can cause Liver Damage

by Ralph Teller

Antidepressant induced liver injury can be irreversible

Antidepressant drugs can cause drug-induced liver injury (DILI).

Although an infrequent event, antidepressant-induced liver injury can be irreversible!

The research was conducted by a team of doctors from France. These doctors also concluded that Antidepressant liver toxicity has been underestimated and that liver damage can occur unrelated to dosage.

Liver damage may occur between several days and 6 months after initiation of an antidepressant use.

The study recommends Antidepressants "should be discontinued immediately" in any patient with suspected drug-induced liver injury.

The researchers found, In some instances, life-threatening antidepressant-induced liver injury has been involved in liver failure or death.

This study is just one of numerous recent studies that have found dangerous health side effects to Antidepressant medication use. Antidepressants have been found to (i) disrupt normal and healthy metabolism, (ii) have unhealthy nerve and muscular side effects, (iii) have unhealthy cardiovascular side effects, (iv) cause significant weight gain and (v) be a significant contributing factor causing Type 2 Diabetes.

The antidepressants associated with greater risks of hepatotoxicity include iproniazid, nefazodone, phenelzine, imipramine, amitriptyline, duloxetine, bupropion, trazodone, tianeptine, and agomelatine.
