Antidepressants are primarily used for treating depression, but some of these medications are also approved for treating other conditions unrelated to depression. Since there are many types of antidepressants to choose from, including SSRIs and SNRIs, it is important to work with your healthcare provider to find the right medication for you. Potential side effects of antidepressants include changes in appetite, weight, and sleep patterns.
