Have Copd dx for years. Recently figured out that some antidepressant meds, and also anti-anxiety meds cause Shortness of Breath!! Noticed a big difference in ability to breath, walk, etc after stopping an antidepressant due to other side effects. Started researching and learned that many of these meds list shortness or breath as side effect. Would love to hear from anyone taking these meds, or anyone who has noticed improvement in symptoms for any other reasons. Seems many docs don't really know the side effects of antidepressants and anxiety meds? I am doing my own research, and would appreciate any info anyone can provide about this. Thanks. Breath easy.
