Some antidepressant drugs have proved to cause heart attacks and strokes in patients. Scientists have classified these antidepressant drugs in the SSRI category - Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor. Famous drugs like Citalopram and Escitalopram are widely known to be SSRI-type of drugs. Medical analysts have shown that both Citalopram and Escitalopram have the capacity to trigger a heart rhythm disturbance. Fair enough, the SSRI drugs are far from being life-threatening. As a matter of fact, health officials have already warned doctors and pharmaceutical officers to be extra careful about which patients they prescribe these medicines to! Meanwhile, both regulators from the United Kingdom and the United States have made sure that the SSRI drugs are taken at the lowest dose, even if doctors have prescribed them.
