Summary Antidepressants are amongst the most commonly prescribed classes of drugs and their use continues to grow. The World Health Organisation estimates that depression effects approximately 121 million people worldwide, with 26 million people receiving some form of medical care for depression [1]. A large number of these people will be treated with antidepressants. Moreover, antidepressants are commonly administered to special populations, such as the elderly, children and women during reproductive life stages. Depression is also commonly associated with comorbid physical illnesses [2], being overweight [3], tobacco smoking [4], poor diet [5] and lack of physical activity [6]. Large numbers of people being treated, often with vulnerabilities, increases the likelihood of adverse drug reactions to antidepressant treatment.
