Use of SSRI conferred a small, but statistically significant risk of brain hemorrhage, according to an analysis of multiple epidemiologic studies. SSRI users had a 40% to 50% increase in the relative risk of intracranial and intracerebral hemorrhage compared with people who had never taken one of the drugs, according to Daniel G. Hackam, MD, PhD, and Marko Mrkobrada, MD, of the University of Western Ontario in Hamilton.
