Psychosocial Conditions & Approaches
A side of effect of antipsychotic medication to be aware of is photosensitivity, particularly when doing an outdoor activity. Another side effect of antipsychotic medication is hypotension, but this often occurs when a client quickly stands from a seated position.
Dry mouth or thirst can be a side effect of antidepressants. Blurred vision can be a side effect of anticonvulsant drugs.
