Question: Should I trust a psychiatrist who doesn't tell me about...

...the side effects of antidepressants?

While we are discussing this topic, wouldn't it be unethical of a psychiatrist not to tell a patient of the side effects of antidepressants?

I think it would be unethical, but the psychiatrist I talked to didn't care to delve into the topic of side effects of antidepressants when he prescribed me antidepressants.

It would be unusual for any physician to not want to talk about the side effects of any medicine prescribed.
