Headaches, fatigue, and nausea are some of the possible side effects of Brisdelle. However, most women tolerate the medicine well; if side effects occur, they are often minor and easily treated. Some reactions may lead to potentially serious complications and require immediate medical attention, such as thoughts of suicide, vision changes, or seizures.


An Introduction to Brisdelle Side Effects

As with any medicine, Brisdelle™ (paroxetine mesylate capsules) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the medication will have problems. In fact, most women tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur while taking Brisdelle, in many cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Brisdelle. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)

Common Side Effects of Brisdelle

Brisdelle has been studied extensively in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occurred in a group of people given the drug were documented and compared with the side effects that occurred in a similar group given a placebo (a "sugar pill" with no active ingredients). As a result, it was possible to see what side effects occurred, how often they appeared, and how they compared to the placebo.
In clinical studies, the most common Brisdelle side effects included:
  • Headache -- in up to 6.3 percent of people
  • Fatigue, lack of energy, or a general feeling of discomfort -- up to 4.9 percent
  • Nausea or vomiting -- up to 4.3 percent.
