My sister has low body temperature, last reading was 94.8. I looked up hypothermia causes and drug causes are on the list. My sister is on anti-depressants and "certain anti-depressants" can cause hypothermia. There is no information on which anti-depressants can cause hypothermia! Which anti-depressants can cause hypothermia? I'm frustrated. Why have a section that says one cause of hypothermia is drug related and "certain anti-depressants" are the culprit but no anti-depressants are listed? Which anti-depressant drugs cancause hypothermia? Are some anti-depressants more dangerous than others in this case? My sister has been on anti-depressants most of her life, does this have anything to do with her problem/symptoms?
