SSRIs Cause Epilepsy In Rats

Well What D'ya Know? 

More of the Direct Effects (that's right, the term Side-Effect is BS to cover for the fact that if you hadn't been BS-ed into ingesting the drug in the first place, you Wouldn't be suffering the Direct Effects of that drug to begin with) bubble to the surface, kind of like the remains that belch up out of the La Brea Tar Pits from time to time.

SSRIs Cause Epilepsy In Rats

December 16, 2013
Researchers from Australia find that chronic treatment with SSRIs significantly increases the rate of epileptogenesis in rats.  Although SSRIs are commonly prescribed to people with epilepsy due to its high comorbidity with depression, they say, no previous studies have investigated the effects of SSRIs on epileptogenesis.  Results appeared online in the journal Neurobiology of Disease.
