Tom Pennybacker, consultant psychiatrist based in London, briefly outlines how antidepressants, like all licensed medications, are tested and monitored in patients over time for safety. https://www.thechelseapsychologyclinic.com Chelsea Psychology Clinic are a group of London psychologists and psychiatrists offering private psychological therapy and psychiatry treatment from their premises across central London and Chelsea. The private therapy sessions cover the following areas: – Acceptance & Commitment Therapy – Cognitive Analytic Therapy – Cognitive-behavioural Therapy – Couples Therapy – Dialectical-behaviour Therapy – Mentalisation Based Treatment – Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy – Schema Therapy
We know that antidepressants are safe, because like all medications that are available for prescription in this country, they’ve been extensively tested over many years. And also, of course, we’ve had quite a lot of clinical experience of using them with our patients and making sure that they have a safe and therapeutic effect.
